A Bronx father was charged in the deaths of his two twins after he left them in a hot car where they died.
According to police, the man left the twins in the car for eight hours while he was at work at the VA hospital.
Rodriguez told police he dropped one of his children, a three-year-old, at a home in Westchester, and then drove to work at the VA Medical Center in the Bronx around 8:00 a.m. He told police he forgot the children were in the car seats when he parked, police said.
He said he went back into his car after his eight-hour shift and started to drive away, according to police. He drove for two blocks before discovering the children in the back seat and called 911.
Rodriguez’s bail was set at $50,000 cash and $100,000 bond.
