CHICAGO (WGN) -- Two children are dead following an incident in a high-rise in Chicago's South Shore neighborhood.

According to police, the boys were just 1 and 2 years old, and the incident appears to be a case of murder and attempted suicide.

Police were called to the Water's Edge Apartments in the 7200 block of South Shore just before 2 a.m. Thursday. Upon arrival, officers discovered a woman and her 1-year-old son on the ground outside the building.

Security directed officers to an 11th floor apartment where they found a 70-year-old man with cuts on his face and body, and a 2-year-old boy unresponsive in a bathtub.

The man told police his daughter began stabbing him and then jumped from the 11th floor window with the 1-year-old.

Both toddlers were pronounced dead at Comer Children's Hospital.

The man and his daughter are at the University of Chicago Medical Center in critical condition.
