Twins sisters aged 97 die after falling in freezing cold

Extreme Cold Claims Two Lives in Barrington News Sources Say

Authorities say twin 97-year-old sisters apparently froze to death after falling down outside a Rhode Island home, one of them while coming to the rescue of the other.

Police said a neighbor found Martha Williams and Jean Haley, both 97, dead at Haley's Opechee Drive home Saturday morning.

The sister's bodies were sent to the coroner's office for an autopsy, but the authorities believe that they've died due to hypothermia.

Haley went to call police for help, but she tripped and fell in the garage. It is presumed the pair were outside overnight, after dining Friday night with an 89-year-old younger sister, who left the home around 8:30 p.m. Jean Haley managed to reach the garage, while Martha Williams remained behind to lock the vehicle.

A neighbor discovered the twin sisters in critical condition the next morning.
