Asa North was taken into custody on Friday morning according to WAFB-TV.  Neighbors described him as “frantic” hours before his daughters, Ariel and Alaynah North were unresponsive.

“The neighbors heard some screaming — I guess coming from the father — and saw him running around back with the two children,” said Capt. Chris Dobbs of the Carrollton Police Department.

North and neighbors reportedly tried to cool down the girls’ body temperatures by putting them in an inflatable kiddie pool.

“Actually one of the neighbors got some ice packs out of the freezer and carried it out there,” Dobbs said. “What we believe is the father had left the children unattended in a vehicle for a certain amount of time. We don’t know that yet.”
