Two-year-old twins died after falling from the 10th floor of a Romanian apartment building while their mother was live broadcasting on Facebook and a friend was watching over the kids.
Moise Cristian Petrice and Beatrice-Erica Petrice, twins, died on the night of August 11 in Ploiesti, a city in eastern Romania about 35 miles from Bucharest.
According to police, the twins’ mother was broadcasting live on Facebook when she heard ambulance sirens, but she had no indication there was an issue until a person knocked hard on the apartment door, causing her to cease streaming.
However, speaking on Romanian chat show Access Direct on August 18, the mum Andreea Violeta Petrice and her friend, named only as Alina, had two very different versions of events, and they launched serious allegations at each other regarding what happened that night.
Andreea claimed she was sleeping in another room with her eldest son because he was extremely aggressive towards the twins. She said the twins were being watched by her friend Alina.
Andreea said she later went to check on the twins and discovered they were missing, noting that their usually tidy room was a complete mess with upturned furniture and nappies scattered all over the room.
