Their great-grandmother, who has Alzheimer’s, is thought to have left the door open, resulting in the 18-month-old twin toddlers drowning in the family pool at home.

The 18-month-old twins Locklyn and Loreli were discovered by their mother Jenny Callazzo at the bottom of a murky pool on their property, where the family makes their home near Oklahoma City.

The twins’ mother discovered them both unconscious. Both kids had been pronounced dead two hours after they had been discovered. Mother-of-two Callazzo operates a store while staying at home.

She shares a $565,000 house with other family members where her children drowned. Her six children, her six children’s grandma, and her husband Sonny make up her family. Her husband is a marketing executive who is 42 years old.

According to a relative who spoke to the media, Callazzo’s grandmother has dementia and had left the rear door of the house open. When the door was open, the twin toddlers sneaked away unnoticed.

Police are looking into the incident, but they don’t think there was any wrongdoing in these young people’s untimely deaths.

The twins are believed to have drowned in a filthy pool that was covered in green algae, according to local journalists who took aerial pictures of the house. The sad event occurred just a few days after Callazzo, 37, shared a photo of her kids playing outside on Facebook with the message “just want to play outside.”

Residents recounted the terrifying moment they witnessed the devastated woman in the back of an ambulance while paramedics worked to rescue her kids.

To assist the family with the costs related to medical bills and funeral expenditures, a GoFundMe account has been set up.

“These beautiful babies were taken from us too soon. Anything you can give to help with expenses would be greatly appreciated. We appreciate everyone’s love and support,” the description for the GoFundMe page said.

The injury prevention coordinator for trauma at OU Health, Laura Gamino, expressed the hope that parents are aware of the risks associated with young children playing in or near water.

“Anything can happen in an instant,” she warned.

“Children are attracted to water and toddlers won’t have the skills to be able to help themselves get out of water … Drowning is very sudden, and it’s very silent,” she warned.

“Sometimes people have an idea that a child will have trouble in the water and be screaming, but they can’t because their mouth is full of water. So it’s very silent, and that’s one of the scariest things about it.”

Gamino urges parents and caretakers to build at least 4-foot-high fences around their pools with a gate so that young children are not able to open them.
