COPS rescued twin toddlers from a beach in Florida, where they were found with a woman who had been shot dead.
The twins were dressed in pink when they were found on Monday in Pompano Beach, at around 5.19am, by detectives.
Two officers could be seen holding two babies by a news helicopter hovering over the scene, but it remains unclear how the children are related to the woman.
Detectives were called to the 614 Gardens Drive by a resident within the block.
“Detectives are speaking to the resident at this time,” Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy Gerdy St. Louis told WSVN.
“We can confirm that they are relatives to the victim … but we cannot confirm the relation,” he added.

“We’ve lived here for about six years now, and I always felt that it was a safe place to live,” she said, “and now I kind of feel nervous about the fact that somebody was murdered right — cause we live right there.”
Officials are seeking the public’s help in solving the murder.
“We are also reviewing some of the surveillance cameras in the neighborhood, and we’re asking residents to provide surveillance if they have it,” said St. Louis.
The identity of the victim has not been revealed and the shooting remains under investigation.
