CHICAGO — Chicago police say two toddlers are dead after a woman believed to be their mother stabbed a 70-year-old man, left one of the children in a bathtub and then threw the other out an 11th-floor window before jumping herself.

Police say the woman was found on the ground early Thursday with her 1-year-old son. The 70-year-old man, who is believed to be the woman’s grandfather, was found bleeding in the apartment in Chicago’s South Shore neighborhood.

Police say the other child, a 2-year-old boy, was in the bathtub at the apartment.

Police say both children were pronounced dead at a hospital, while the man and woman were hospitalized in critical condition.
