Three small children perished during the deeply tragic circumstances in the city of Live Oak in Florida.
The three children aged 1, 4 and 6 years old crawled under the play down in an empty freezer. Here they perished because of lack of oxygen, informs a spokesperson from the police in Suwanee County for a number of u.s. media.
the Freezer was located outside of the house and was not connected coupled to a power outlet.
the Children lived with their grandmother and mother. The women went at a time into the house, while the three children were playing in the garden. As the women after about ten minutes came out again, the children had vanished without a trace.
The two women immediately started to look for the missing children. When the children were found in the deepfreezer, it was too late. Rescuers were called in, but it was not possible to revive the three small children on the spot.
the Police investigation has revealed that it probably is a hasp on the dybfryserens lid, which has prevented the children from coming out of the freezer.
An autopsy has ruled that it was lack of oxygen, which caused the deaths of the three children.
the Tragedy occurred on Sunday and has triggered great sadness in the local area.
Words can not describe my sorrow. It is heartrending when children get such a death, says the local sheriff, Sam, John.
According to the police, there is nothing to suggest a crime.
