Sources tell Action News that an investigation is underway after two infants were found dead in Camden County.

An investigation is underway after twin infants were found dead in a New Jersey apartment.

The call came in at around 8 a.m. Wednesday for police to respond to the Pine Apartments at 550 Bilper Avenue in Lindenwold.

"Oh my God, my twins, my twins, my twins are like purple. My kids, they're not breathing, they're not breathing, oh my God," the panicked mother can be heard saying in a 911 call.

"Ma'am, are the children, are they on their back?" the dispatcher said.

"I just put them on their backs. They were sleeping on their stomachs," the mother said.

Camden County Prosecutor's Office is handling the investigation.

No cause of death has been released, and very few details have been made public.

"It is difficult to assume what went on. I really don't know what is happening, so right now I am just keeping myself quiet until I get the full gist of the story," said Ted Ambrose of Lindenwold.

"Very shocking and very sad as well -- my prayers are with their family and I hope they get through this," said Gabriel Rivera.
