News anchor at the station WD BJ Jean Jadhon spoke about the incident on air.

''It's really hard to even comprehend, we cover these things all the time but it's really hard when you know the people involved. It's tough covering it when you don't know the people but when it's two of your own and so young, it's really hard,'' she said. 

President Barack Obama says it breaks his heart to hear of such incidents.
