TWO toddlers have been fatally stabbed to death in a Bronx apartment according to reports.
A police source informed The U.S. Sun that two boys around the ages of one and three years old were stabbed at 246 Echo Place in Mount Hope around 8.00 pm on Saturday, November 26.
The FDNY told ABC News that they got a call in the evening for a report of cardiac arrest, but arrived at the scene to find the children.
The victims were reportedly stabbed in the neck with an unconfirmed ‘sharp object.’
They were then taken to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital.
However, the victims were unable to recover from their injuries, per police sources.
The mother of the toddlers has reportedly been taken into custody as well.
A witness at the scene told The New York Post that arguments had erupted between the family when a neighbor went to check on the situation, but it was too late.
Per the witness, they had opened their door and saw the boys’ father running toward her with the boys asking for help.

“There was blood everywhere, covered them — it was over,” the witness told The New York Post.
“It’s heartbreaking, it was horrible,” they continued.
The witness also claimed that the mother stabbed the two children according to alleged statements from the boys’ father.
“He said she killed them,” they explained in the video from The New York Post.
Despite this, the NYPD is yet to confirm any information regarding the mother and the father’s involvement in the children’s deaths.
Per the source, police are conducting an ongoing investigation and intend to release more information as it develops.
