Twins die in separate cribs on the same day in New Jersey

AMDEN, N.J.  — The medical examiner in New Jersey’s Camden County says twin 7-month-old sisters found unresponsive in their individual cribs died of natural causes.

The county prosecutor’s office on Friday did not say how Jessenia and Juliana Rodriguez-Garnett died.

Their mother, Alexandria Garnett, found them in their crib in their Lindenwold apartment on March 22.

She could be heard screaming on a 911 call that they “are not breathing and both are purple.”

A dispatcher told her how to perform CPR on the children, and she tried to revive them, but they remained unresponsive.

Police arrived moments later, and the roughly six-minute call soon ended.

The sisters’ funeral will take place at Wooster Funeral Home in Clementon on Saturday.
