Twin infant girls died after they were left in a car Thursday in northwest Georgia during a hot, humid day.


The 15-month-old girls were found in a car parked outside an apartment complex in Carrollton, Georgia, about 50 miles west of Atlanta, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Bystanders tried to cool the unresponsive infants in a pool before paramedics rushed them to a hospital, where they were pronounced dead.

The babies' father, 24-year-old Asa North, was arrested on two counts of involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct, reported WSB-TV.

The girls were named Ariel and Alaynahwere.

Temperatures in the Carrollton area on Thursday reached above 90 degrees Fahrenheit, with high humidity.
