Four Missing Kids Found Dead Inside Car In Kano

Four kids have died of suffocation in a suburb of Kano State after they were found trapped in­side a parked vehicle. The tragedy, which had shaken the state, happened at the weekend.

A Deputy Director in the state Fire Service, who was part of the res­cue team, said that the kids were found unconscious inside the ve­hicle, which was parked in Geidam area, but died lat­er after they were rushed to the Murtala Mohammed Specialist Hospital for at­tention

He said the four of them, all boys, had been missing from the respective homes since the morning of the fateful day but were even­tually found trapped inside the parked vehicle at about 5.00pm.

Witnesses said the tem­perature, which had been very high in the state capi­tal in the last few weeks, contributed to the suffoca­tion of the kids.

Police spokesman in the state, DSP Magaji Musa Majiya, said that the owner of the ve­hicle reported the matter to the police. According to him, the vehicle was parked by its owner after it developed a battery fault, saying the owner returned later in the day to fix the battery only to find the kids trapped inside his car. It is believed that the four victims, who were aged between three and five, might have entered the parked vehicle but were unable to open the vehicle due to their age.

The police, however, said they were investigat­ing the incident.
