ATLANTA (AP) — Television and film producer Tyler Perry is offering to pay for the funeral expenses for twin toddlers who died after being left in a hot car in West Georgia.

Atlanta station WSB-TV reports that Perry contacted the station to make the offer after he saw a news report about the deaths of the 15-month-old girls.

Police charged the twins’ father, 24-year-old Asa North, with manslaughter after witnesses said they saw him carry the children to an inflatable kiddie pool in a frantic attempt to cool them off last Thursday.

Their mother, Breal Ellis, who had been in Atlanta at the time, told WSB that she was having trouble finding the money to bury the children. The station reports that Perry contacted its reporter after that interview aired last week.
