Despite repeated warnings, some parents are still leaving their children unattended in a hot car during the summer heat. Tragically, another case of hot-car death has taken place in the city of Carrollton, Georgia. Asa North, 24, left his twin 16-month-old daughters in his parked SUV while he was in an apartment. When he returned to his vehicle, both toddlers were unresponsive.

The father frantically yelled for help and tried to revive the girls in a kiddie pool. Nearby residents of the complex rushed to his aid with ice packs. When emergency services arrived the girls, identified as Ariel and Alaynah, were rushed to the hospital where they were pronounced dead. Police questioned the father for several hours before arresting North. He has been charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter and two counts of reckless conduct and is in the Carroll County Jail. At this time, authorities are stating that they do not believe North’s actions were intentional. The mother of the children was at an Atlanta hospital visiting her sister, who was injured in a car crash. Family members and friends have stated that all are devastated over the deaths of the toddlers.

Temperatures in Georgia have been above the 90 degree mark throughout the state. Last year, multiple instances of parents leaving children unattended in cars resulted in death. Justin Ross Harris allegedly forgot his son was in the backseat of his car while he went to work at Home Depot. The nursery for his son is located at the Home Depot Corporate campus in Atlanta and was within minutes of Harris’ workplace. Sadly, 22-month-old Cooper Harris died of hyperthermia as temperatures in the car exceeded 100 degrees. On this past July 3, during a bond hearing, prosecutor’s revealed startling evidence that brings into question whether Harris acted deliberately in causing his son’s death. It was later determined that Harris was using dating apps on his phone while his son was in the car.

    This guy looks crazy, and I refuse to believe the twins’ mom didn’t already know he was coo-coo. I also refuse to believe the deaths aren’t intentional because everyone know what happens when you leave anyone, or anything, with a heartbeat in a hot car. He should die also.

      Young father that was probably has little interaction with them and only with them because the mother was out of town. Don’t think it was intentional but extremely careless. So sad.

    I wonder how the black comunity willl make this the white people’s fault?.

    He’s just another lame black guy thinking he’s a gangsta. People need took undergo operations to stop pregnancies at the start of puberty. That would last until middle 20’s .Then be put through rigorous evaluations to determine if they have common sense enough to raise a child. When they meet the qualifications then they can be surgically restored to haven a child. If not an intelligent person then hey no babies for them!. Oh and ALL COSTS WOU!LD BE PAID BY PARENTS UNTIL THEY ARE OLD ENOUGH TO SEE IF THEY HAVE A BRAIN to go with the reproductive organs!

        Then he should have not had children yet.

        He killed his own kids which is not usually what happens in police involved shootings.

        Fiona is a woman’s name dumba$$.

        Give him 2 life sentences as he clearly killed 2 blacks. BLM right so max sentence should be assigned.

    I hope that “Rolling out” eventually does what other sites do which is monitor the site for inappropriate comments , hatred, bigotry & plain ole ignorance. & block them from posting in the site.. . I’m sure many have left visiting this site because of the people who posts here., there is no constructive & neither productive discussions & dialogue here. You messy ppl can continue to bash each other & chime in with your foolishness.
