A New York City social worker has been charged with two counts of manslaughter after his one-year-old twins were found dead in the backseat of his car. 
Juan Rodriguez was also charged with two counts of criminally negligent homicide over the deaths of daughter Mariza and son Phoenix after he accidentally left them inside his hot vehicle for eight hours on Friday. 
Rodriguez, 39, is reported to have parked his Honda Accord in The Bronx around 8am, before heading off to work at a nearby Veterans Association hospital.
He returned to his vehicle at 4pm and began driving off, before realizing that his twins were on the backseat.
The babies were dead and 'foaming at the mouth', according to The New York Post.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the inside of a car can reach up to 172 degrees if outside temperatures range from 80 to 100 degrees. 
On Friday evening, shocked bystanders gathered at the scene, as police cordoned off the area and launched an investigation. 
One onlooker told Pix 11: 'How can you leave the children behind and forget? As a father, you're supposed to take care of your family, take care of your responsibilities.'
