AURORA, Ind. (AP) — Police in southeastern Indiana say twin 2-year-old girls have died after being found in a neighbor’s swimming pool.

The Dearborn County Sheriff’s Department says the girls were reported missing Tuesday evening from their home near the town of Aurora.

Sgt. John Vance tells WLWT-TV that the girls were found more than an hour later by a neighbor and firefighter in an above-ground pool a couple houses away in the area about 20 miles west of Cincinnati. The pool had tarp over it with standing water.

Both girls were rushed to a hospital in Lawrenceburg, where they were pronounced dead.

Sgt. Max Socks tells WCPO-TV that foul play isn’t suspected in the deaths.

The names of the girls weren’t immediately released.
