2 children dead in Duxbury; infant flown to hospital


DUXBURY − Two children, a 5-year-old and a 3-year-old, are dead and an 8-month-old was flown to a Boston-area hospital with serious injuries after they were discovered inside a Duxbury home Tuesday night.

Plymouth County District Attorney Tim Cruz said first responders rushed to the home at 47 Summer St. just after 6 p.m. after receiving a 911 call from a male resident.

Cruz said the man reported the attempted suicide of an adult female resident who had jumped out a window in the home.

First responders discovered the three children, all unconscious with obvious signs of trauma, Cruz said.

“A 5-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy were transported to a local hospital where they were pronounced deceased,” Cruz said at a news conference. An update on the condition of the 8-month-old was not immediately available.
