Two three-year-old girls were found dead in a car in the backyard of a home they were visiting in Georgia, police have confirmed.
Twins Raelynn and Payton Keyes were discovered inside the vehicle by their caregiver in Griffin Park, Hinesville shortly after 1.30pm on Sunday, WTOC reported.
Emergency services were then called to the Augusta Way home, and, shortly after, medics declared the toddlers dead.
An official cause of death has not yet been revealed for the two girls, pending an autopsy report, but temperatures had reached around 92 degrees Fahrenheit that afternoon.
