Police Arrest Father Whose Twin Daughters Died After Being Left In A Hot Car

Police in West Georgia have arrested the father of the twins girls who died after they were left in a hot car.

Police said they were investigating the case under the assumption the girls died because of the heat inside the car; autopsies were to be conducted Friday morning.

"We do believe they were left in the car for a period of time," Carrollton police Capt. Chris Dobbs said.

Dobbs said neighbors of the family in Carrollton called 911 on Thursday evening after hearing screaming and yelling.
When police arrived at a duplex, the twins were out of the car and in a kiddie pool, where their father Asa North was trying to revive them. Frantic neighbors tried to lower their body temperatures using ice packs, Dobbs said.
The toddlers, Ariel Roxanne North and Alaynah Maryanne North, were transported to the hospital but did not survive.

The 24 years old father is expected to be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter and two counts of reckless conduct, according to Dobbs.
