Twin 2-year-old girls in Massachusetts drown in family pool

Authorities say twin toddler girls are dead after they drowned in the family swimming pool in Massachusetts.

Essex District Attorney spokeswoman Carrie Kimball Monahan said police were called to the home in Lynnfield, about 17 miles north of Boston, at about 10:20 a.m. Saturday after a report of "babies in the pool."

Monahan said firefighters gave CPR to 2-year-old Angelina and Veronica Andreottola before they were taken to Union Hospital in Lynn, where they were pronounced dead.

She said the girl's mother, Crystal Andreottola, was home at the time of the accident.

Monahan said the girls may have somehow opened a remote pool cover, but authorities were still investigating what happened.

She said no foul play was suspected and no charges would be brought.
