A Manhattan nanny allegedly stabbed two children to death and then turned the knife on herself late this afternoon, sources said.
The mother of the children — ages 3 and 5 — came home about 5:34 p.m. to find them dead in a bathtub at their tony apartment on 57 W. 75th St. on the Upper West Side, sources said.
The nanny, who has not been identified, is in police custody. She was rushed to New York Presbyterian in critical condition, sources added.
A neighbor told The Post she heard “the mother screaming hysterically” when she arrived at the apartment. She said the pediatrician mother also had a third child, though it is unclear if the youth was at the home during the vicious attack.
“It’s horrifying, it’s a very quiet building,” said the neighbor, who met the nanny for the first time yesterday and described her as “very quiet.”
“She just stared ahead,” the neighbor added.
