3-Week Old Twins Found With Dead Mother

By Debra Myers     Nov 18, 2007 in Health
Responding to a report of a foul odor, paramedics found the body of a woman who'd been dead for several days. One of the emergency crew members, bumped into a bed and found the malnourished twins after one of them cried-out.
Olathe, Kansas - The infants were taken to the hospital, both weak and malnourished. The little girl died, and her twin brother is fighting for his life and is in critical condition.
Their mother, Virginia Wanjiru Njoroge, 36, appeared to have been dead for several days due to the decomposition of her body. An autopsy was performed and found no evidence of foul play.
The Associated Press stated that "Emergency crews who found the woman noticed car seats and other baby items in the apartment, leading to a more thorough search." Somehow, the babies ended up under a bed where they were found.
After finding the children with their dead mother, the emergency personel were really upset and asked for a chaplain after returning to their headquarters.
"Dealing with babies and small children is very stressful," Eric Gourley, a Johnson County Med-Act battalion chief said. "The little ones get close to you."
