(NEW YORK) — Police have arrested a nanny accused of killing two small children in a luxury apartment building on Manhattan’s affluent Upper West Side.
The children’s mother came home to find the nanny wielding a knife and her two children, aged 1 and 6, dead in a bathtub, police said.
The nanny then stabbed herself, police said.
The victims were all taken to a nearby hospital as police cars stayed at the scene stopping traffic at rush hour.
The mother arrived home around 5:30 p.m., police said. After 911 calls, police and ambulances quickly responded to the building called La Rochelle, according to WABC.
