So sad! 4-year-old Twins Suffocate To Death Inside Car In Aba

Oh no! two four year old boys, Chukwuemeka and
Chiemela Okechukwu, (twins) suffocated to death
inside a car parked in front of their house on Monday at Osisioma, a suburb of Aba, the commercial
capital of Abia State.

They were initially with their mum Mrs. Ngozi Okechukwu (a nurse) that morning but their mum had to leave them to attend to their pregnant neighbors who went into labour.

Sun news reports that “when the
mother of the twins saw the condition of her pregnant neighbour, she
arranged and took her to hospital and allowed the twins whose elder
siblings went to school, to play with other children in the compound. However,
as the twins were playing, nobody knew when they left the compound and
went to where some cars were displayed for sale beside the Enugu/Port
Harcourt Expressway, near the Osisioma Junction. The two kids opened and entered one of the cars on display, unnoticed
and locked themselves in under the heat of the scorching sun. When at
about 1 pm the elder sisters came back from school and could not see
their younger brothers who they knew did not go to school that day, they
raised the alarm.”

Their father, Levi Okechukwu Onwusoamaonye
who had gone
to work was alerted and he came home. A search party was said to have
been immediately raised, which combed the area but to no avail. It was
around 4 pm that the children were seen inside the car already dead
through suffocation. They were rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors
confirmed them dead. The bodies of the twins had been deposited in a
mortuary…so sad!
