2 babies dead in my neighborhood *edited*
October 12, 2012 at 8:31 PM
At 3:21 this afternoon, our local fire dept got a call "house on fire, 2 kids inside, babysitter jumped out the window". By the time they got to the house at 3:23, the house was engulfed in flames. They found a 4 year old child dead on the scene. A 3 year old child was taken to a local hospital, where they were pronounced DOA. The babysitter is in critical condition at another local hospital.

My thoughts go out to the families of the babies & the babysitter.


Edit-apparently the babysitter was the kids' aunt. Also no cause determined as of yet (so far that I know of). The window was a 2nd story window. The aunt/babysitter is still in critical condition.

Will edit again if I get new details.

    Thank God I've never been in this situation, but I just can't imagine leaving babies inside a burning house. I guess I don't have much to say never being there though. Rest in peace little babies

    Bump! I know it's not about Jessica or a drama post, but these babies (& their family) deserve our thoughts.

    I know a couple who escaped without their kids. They died. I could never leave a burning building without my kids.

    I kinda wanna be mad at the babysitter in this situation. She jumped out a window, leaving the kids inside. Sorry, if I have a sitter, I pay them to keep my kids safe. Plus 911 call came from the cell phone of the contractor working across the street who saw smoke.
