Authorities are investigating the tragic death of two 3-year-old girls who were crushed by a cement mixer in Sichuan, China.

Horrified witnesses gathered at the scene and took videos of the blood stained mixer and a pair of shoes next to the machine.

According to authorities, the findings revealed that the three-year-old twins were left unattended by their parents near a construction site on Friday.

The curious children were able to enter the construction site. There were no workers at the site at the time of the incident.
