TRAGEDY: TWINS FOUND DEAD IN FAMILY SWIMMING POOL





A pair of tragic twin toddlers have been laid to rest in tiny white coffins after they died in a swimming pool accident just before Christmas.
Little Robbie and Charli Manago were found unconscious in their backyard pool by their mother Fleur on December 20.
he pair, a boy and girl aged just 23 months, were pulled from the water by their screaming mum.
A desperate neighbour raced over to help after hear Fleur's cries and the two adults began performing CPR on the twins' lifeless bodies.
Paramedics arrived at the house in Kellyville, Sydney, Australia, and took the toddlers to a nearby hospital where medics began working around the clock to try and save them.
Both children were put on life support machines but tragically Charli died on Boxing Day and her brother passed away three days later.
Police revealed the tragic twins were only out of their parents' sight "for a few minutes" as they issued an appeal for people to be aware of their children around pools.
More than 500 people descended on a church to pay their respects at the twins' funeral yesterday.
Robbie and Charli were brought into Our Lady of the Angels Catholic Church in tiny white coffins with a teddy bear laid on top.
The tearful parents, who have four older children, were supported by friends and family as "Somewhere over the Rainbow" was played in the church.
The Our Lady of the Angels Primary School issued a statement on the family's behalf, asking people to pray for them.
The statement read: "Our community has shared, in a small way, the sadness and despair of the Manago family.
