Tyler Perry is offering some hope to a mother whose twins died in a hot car in Carrollton, GA earlier this week.
The media mogul has offered to pay the funeral costs.
The Atlanta-based film director called the Channel 2 Action News newsroom and said he would pay for the funeral after watching an interview reporter Dave Huddleston did with their mother, Breal Ellis.
Ellis’ daughters, 15-month-olds Ariel Roxanne North and Alaynah Maryanne North, were found dead in a hot car Thursday. The father, Asa North, 24, was arrested and faces two involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct charges.
Ellis, who was checking on another family member who was injured in a car crash at the time of the girls’ death, told Channel 2 she didn’t know how she was going to pay for the twins’ funeral. She lost another child a few years ago.
What a tragic story. Prayers go out to Breal and the Ellis family.
