It seems like an almost weekly occurrence in the States right now, and it has emerged this morning that yet another ‘hot car accident’ has claimed two young lives.

 

According to CNN, a 24-year-old man has been arrested after his 16-month-old twin daughters died from the effects of being left in a hot car.

 

The incident occurred in Georgia on Thursday, with police called to an apartment after being alerted by concerned neighbours of Asa North.

 

 

Asa was reportedly seen carrying his daughters, Ariel and Alaynah, into his home and placing them in a paddling pool, in a bid to cool them down; neighbours are said to have tried to help, with ice packs.

 

The unresponsive children were rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment but, tragically, they were pronounced dead shortly after.

 

Police revealed that they are treating the story as a ‘hot car accident’, and have charged Asa with two counts of involuntary manslaughter and a further two counts of reckless conduct.

 

 

The children’s mother was reportedly out of town visiting a sick relative at the time of the tragic incident.

 

Our hearts go out to the family at this devastating time.
