The tragic accident happened on Wednesday at the toddlers home in an apartment building in the Bronx on Hunts Point Avenue. The two girls were napping when a faulty radiator malfunctioned, sending hot steam all over the two children.
Ibanez Ambrose and Scylee Ambrose were both tragically pronounced dead as a result of their injuries. An investigation is ongoing to determine cause and liability. City Councilman Rafael Salamanca has stated that radiators are not normally included in inspections.
