Police suspected the children’s mother because a second emergency call came in around 7:55 p.m., five minutes after the woman was admitted to St. Bernabas Hospital. They reported that the children’s father called 911 after finding their bodies.

“Around 7:55 pm, police received a second 911 call at the same location from the children’s father, reporting that the children were unresponsive,” the deputy police chief said. The mother was not arrested and the children’s father was not detained, Patrol Borough Bronx Deputy Chief Louis De Ceglie said during a news conference Saturday night, according to The Associated Press.

De Ceglie said officers and a family member tried to revive the children while they waited for an ambulance, which took them to NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center, where they died. The police have a “person of interest” in custody and are continuing to investigate, according to The Associated Press.

“Despite the best efforts of the officers, both children succumbed to their injuries,” De Ceglie said. At the moment, the investigation continues and the mother has been arrested.
