Authorities in Massachusetts are investigating after twin infant boys were reportedly found abandoned near railroad tracks early Wednesday.
WYCN reported that railroad engineer Eric Martell discovered the babies inside a double stroller at the site of a trash and recycling facility in Worchester. Martell said the train he was on was moving a few miles an hour, allowing him to quickly spot the babies and tell the conductor to stop the train.
“I saw the little baby wave at me,” he recalled. “I saw his little arm, he started sucking his thumb, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, there’s a baby in there.'”

Martell said he called out for the boys’ parents but didn’t locate them. Since then, the news station confirmed that authorities have made contact with the parents.
The boys were reportedly unharmed and are in the custody of the Department of Children and Families. The babies are approximately nine months old and have been identified, according to reports.
It’s not immediately known whether the parents will face criminal charges.
