Two toddlers are recovering from their injuries and their father is dead after he apparently leaped from a bridge in New Jersey holding his kids, state police said.

Police said the incident took place on the Interstate 287 overpass near the Wanaque River in the northern part of the state.

Officers were called to a residence about 7 p.m. Monday after getting a report of a domestic dispute, according to a statement released by Capt. Christopher DePuyt of the Pequannock Township Police Department.

The woman there told officers that she had argued with her husband and he threatened to harm the children. He had then taken off with their 1-year-old and 3-year-old boys in his car, the statement said.

Authorities tracked down the vehicle using the GPS signal on the man's phone, DePuyt said.
They found the car on the shoulder of Interstate 287 on a bridge. Police then found the two children, injured but conscious, in a wooded area beneath the bridge.

The father, found in the same location, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
Investigators believe the man intentionally jumped.

Night had fallen over the Wanaque River in northern New Jersey. A few minutes after 8 p.m., John Spincken stood at the edge of the Interstate 287 overpass with both of his little boys, 100 feet above the chilly waters.

Moments later all three plunged from the bridge, according to state police. The toddlers, ages 1 and 3, survived the fall. But they were left fatherless as the 37-year-old resident of Pequannock, New Jersey, died in an apparent suicide Monday, state police said.

"When the officers found the children conscious and alert, it was nothing short of a miracle, that's for sure," said Capt. Christopher DePuyt of the Pequannock Township Police Department at a news conference Tuesday.

A woman there told officers that she had argued with her husband and that he had threatened to harm the children. Shortly after, he had taken off with their boys in his car, the statement said.

Authorities tracked down the vehicle using the GPS signal on the man's phone, DePuyt said.

Under the bridge
Authorities found Spincken's car on the shoulder of the Interstate 287 overpass. Police then discovered the two children injured but conscious in a wooded area beneath the bridge.

Spincken, found in the same location, was pronounced dead at the scene within an hour after the initial report, police said.

Paramedics treated both children at the scene before transporting them to the St. Joseph's Medical Center in Paterson, New Jersey.

Wait, how did the children survive?
According to DePuyt, trees underneath the bridge might have broken the fall of each of the toddlers. That's one reason why they're likely both alive.

"I, like anybody that's hearing this story now or last night, if you hear the beginning of the story you're expecting the worst," DePuyt said.

Police are asking for any possible witnesses to come forward so they can determine if Spincken threw the children off the bridge and then jumped, or if he was holding them when he jumped.

Both children were in fair condition at St. Joseph's on Wednesday morning, hospital spokeswoman Liz Asani said.​

His FB is easy to find under his name. That he was so willing to snuff out the lives of those two little boys so easily, I say good riddance to him. Hope the mom has tons of support around her and a good head on her shoulders.

Yay for happy endings. I hope this guy suffered a long long time before he finally expired cold broken and miserable under a New Jersey bridge. What a shitty-fied way to kick the bucket.

THIS TAKES MY HEART AND WRINGS IT RAW .
the gods were kind to that lady, and that's beautiful.
But( not blaming anyone)
But, she must've done something that ripped this guy's whole world off of its axis,
And I'm curious to know, was she leaving him with the kids a lot , and carrying on with another, and dude felt she chose "him" over "them",
And hes all..." now you can fuck all you want, we'll be outta your hair".
And ,because he loves so deeply...
He tosses the babies to shallow water, couldnt bear the thought of their terror in the face of drowning.
So, cuz its Jersey, and you ain't hiding a damn thing if yours is the only car pulled over, eith no fuckin driver, you're gonna be looked for.
Diligently ...
And he probably figured, a broken leg ,or an arm...they'd cry, but live.
He couldnt live .
But they sure did.
In a way, this mans PASSION killed him.
He died of a broken heart, BUT NOT THE KIDS...
I'll light a candle for him.
It could gone that way, right?
Maybe?

I have said more than once that I would rather know an ugly truth than believe a beautiful lie, Loretta. And the truth here is ugly indeed.

He intended to destroy her. And if it took his own destruction to achieve that, he was willing to do what it took.

Maybe he started using meth and she didnt like it.

Fir fucks sake, Loretta, it's obvious this dude was a controlling monster to try and punish the mother by killing her babies. Why try and blame her without any proof she was slutting around or any of the other non facts.
