A MOM has allegedly strangled her two children to death before she jumped out of a window, leaving her seriously injured baby in the hospital.

Lindsay Clancy, 32, was named the suspect in the murder of her two children – Cora Clancy, 5, and Dawson Clancy, 3 – after police found them dead in their home in Duxbury, Massachusettes.

Cops raced to the scene on Tuesday night at around 6pm after a man reported that a woman was jumping out of a window.

The man reportedly said it was a suicide attempt, but police have not confirmed this.

When authorities went inside the home, they found three children upstairs who were “unconscious, with obvious signs of trauma,” Plymouth District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz said.

Cora and Dawson died at the hospital and the third child, a 7-month-old boy, was airlifted to a hospital in Boston, where the mother was employed, Massachusetts General Hospital officials said.

“We are shocked and saddened to learn of this unthinkable tragedy,” the hospital told the Boston Globe.

“We extend our deepest sympathies to all those affected by these devastating events.”

Although Cruz said Cora and Dawson appeared to be strangled, their autopsies have yet to be conducted.

Cruz said authorities on Wednesday were “seeking and obtaining an arrest warrant out of Plymouth District Court charging Lindsay Clancy, the mother of these children, with their homicides.”

He said that “we will be arraigning her on the two charges of murder in the death of her children,” as soon as possible.

Clancy is currently being treated at a Boston hospital.

The mom injured herself before she took the fall, according to a dispatcher, per Broadcastify.

“She’s conscious,” the dispatcher reportedly said. “It was over a 20-foot fall.”

According to the dispatcher, the mom sustained back injuries and neck lacerations.

Neighbor John Sullivan told the Globe that his son called him on Tuesday night and told him a woman “was laying down in the backyard.”

When Sullivan went to his neighbor’s house, he reportedly saw first responders performing life-saving measures on a baby outside.

Donna Jesse, who identified herself as an aunt of the children told the Globe: “They were beautiful, beautiful children.”

“It’s pretty shocking,” said Rita Musgrove, who identified herself as the children’s great grandmother.

Jesse and Musgrove were seen visibly emotional as they left a bouquet of roses outside the home, where others had left flowers, the outlet reports.

Tom McGrath who lives near the home was shocked, telling the Globe: “It’s sort of like, how can this happen around here?”

While Sullivan said he didn’t know the family well, he never saw any red flags coming from the home.
