97-year-old twins freeze to death after falling outside

97-year-old twins freeze to death after falling outside

The twins died after going out for dinner together with another sister who had left before the accidents. The sprawling home is somewhat isolated, sitting at the end of the quiet road, where it meets the Hundred Acre Cove.

Twin 97-year-old women in Rhode Island, Jean Y. Haley and Martha Y. Williams, died on Saturday after falling and apparently freezing to death.

Haley went to call police for help, but she tripped and fell in the garage. Some time after the younger sister left, Williams was going to her vehicle. Their younger sister also lived in Barrington, but not as close as the twins lived to each other.

Temperatures dipped to 12 F overnight Friday in the area and, while autopsy results were still pending Monday afternoon, police cited extreme cold temperatures as a possible factor in the deaths.

The women were discovered by a neighbour Saturday morning and rushed to the hospital where they were pronounced dead.

Authorities said foul play is not suspected.

Two sisters from Rhode Island died Saturday after the two fell outside and could not get up overnight.

A man answering the phone at the Barrington home said he was not yet ready to talk about what happened.

According to the Providence Journal, Haley may have been a widow for more than 20 years. They returned to Haley's home at approximately 8:30 p.m.

Police Chief John LaCross told Eyewitness News Williams was face down in the driveway and Haley was face down in the garage.
