The children's diapered bottoms and legs were dangling over the ledge. Neighbors stood below with outstretched arms.

One witness said she went to the apartment but no one answered the door. A man who happened to drive by had a ladder and stopped. He was able to get the toddlers back inside and shut the window.

Police said there was an adult at the apartment at the time. The Department of Children's Services is now investigating.
