A West Roxbury mother killed her two children and then herself on Christmas day by falling from a Roxbury parking garage, Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins said.
This isn't the first incident at the parking structure as Rollins pointed out at the press conference. All three were pronounced dead at a hospital Wednesday.
The victims were found outside the Renaissance Park Garage near Northeastern University just before 1:30 p.m. on Christmas Day.
She said: "As a mother, it was incredibly hard, this scene in particular, where there were two young children who lost their lives today".
The two kids are believed to be the woman and her husband's only children, Rollins said later.
Aerial footage of the scene, which was aired by local television stations showed investigators gathered around the vehicle on the top of the building.

Boeing’s Starliner Spacecraft Makes Safe Landing After Botched Test Flight
If successful, Sunday's landing will mark the first time a United States orbital space capsule designed for humans landed on land. The spacecraft burned too much fuel, which will make it too hard for NASA and Boeing to attempt to dock with the ISS.
Putin says Russian Federation is leading world in hypersonic weapons
The weapon's ability to change its course and altitude en route to a target makes it immune to interception by the enemy, he said. The missiles can be launched from MiG-31 fighter jets and can travel ten times faster than the speed of sound.
Asked by WBUR radio in an interview if the case could be ruled a suicide, Rollins said, "All things are indicating as such".
In a press conference covered by CNN, Boston Police Commissioner William Gross said that the cause and manner of death are not being released at this time.
She urged anyone who feels under stress, for whatever reason, to reach out and get help.
Gross called the situation a "tragedy" and vowed that officers would "do everything in our power to find out everything we can about this death investigation".
Northeastern officials said that earlier this year, the school put additional security staff in place to patrol three multi-level parking facilities on its Boston campus, including the Renaissance Park garage.
Rollins' office, along with Boston police, are conducting an investigation into the fatalities. A second death occurred on December 9. He also said that witnesses, including police officers who responded to the scene, can seek counseling through the city's trauma hotline, 617-431-0125. "This restricted access will continue until a permanent solution is implemented".
Investigators were seen huddling around a black SUV left parked on the rooftop with three of its doors open.
