Twin sisters who were 97 years old froze to death in the cold after tripping and falling outside their Barrington, Rhode Island, home Friday, Barrington Police report.

Martha Williams of East Providence, and twin sister, Jean Haley, of Barrington, died of what authorities believe was hypothermia over the weekend.

They said Williams was headed to her auto to leave when she fell down near the near of the vehicle.

Police Chief John LaCross told Eyewitness News Williams was face down in the driveway and Haley was face down in the garage.

Haley went to call police for help, but she tripped and fell in the garage. They were found on Saturday morning outside Ms Haley's home in the small town of Barrington, about ten miles from Providence, at the edge of a street that borders the water.

LaCross said that both were taken to the hospital in critical condition.
