A couple from Tennessee is charged with child endangerment and abuse when police officers found their 6-month-old twins buried under several garbage bags full of clothing.

An officer approached Crystal Cramer and Christopher Smith at a Versailles gas station when the policeman observed the couple having car trouble, according to NBC affiliate WLEX. When the officer asked if anyone was with them, Cramer motioned to the car.

The policemen observed piles of clothing in garbage bags stacked to the ceiling of the car. After digging through the bags, they found two infants soaked in urine that were cold to the touch and were purple in color, the report said.

The children are now in the custody of state child protective services.
