BROCKTON, Mass.—Officials say 4-year-old twin girls have drowned at their family's swimming pool in Brockton.

The Plymouth District Attorney's office says Lindsey Bonsu died Saturday afternoon and Leslie died early Sunday morning. A spokeswoman for the district attorney says rescue personnel responded to reports that the girls fell into the pool.

The children were taken to Brockton Hospital and transferred to Children's Hospital Boston.

The Boston Globe reports that Brockton Deputy Fire Chief Timothy Murphy says firefighters and paramedics performed CPR on the girls, who were not breathing when they were pulled from the pool at their home at about 10:30 a.m. Saturday.

Brockton and state police are investigating and no additional information was available Sunday.
