    While the dad of two 3 year old twins slept, they supposedly went out and explored.

    When the father woke up, he realized that the little girl, Arrabelle Wagner and the little boy Elijah Wagner were nowhere to be found in the house. He called 911 twice.

    Platte County Under-sheriff Maj. Erik Holland said that the twins had wandered off into the private pond behind their home.

    Their home is near Edgerton, 30 miles near Kansas City.

     The little girl, Arrabelle, was found first. When they found her, they tried to revive her right there on site, but they ended up sending her on an ambulance and taken to the near hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

    Multiple people searched the house for Elijah, thinking maybe he went back to get help for his sister. Meanwhile, divers search the pond behind the house where they found Arrabelle.

    Elijah was then found near a covered dock. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

    "We don't have anything at this point that leads us to believe that this was anything other than a tragic accident, but as with all deaths, we're going to investigate it thoroughly," stated Holland.

    Investigators will be talking about the incident with the children’s father.

    No information was found on the mother of the twins.
