Kwara: Three siblings found dead inside parked car

Kwara: Three siblings found dead inside parked car

Three siblings of the same parents, a boy and two girls, were found dead inside a car parked in their residential quarters in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.

The incident which occurred at No. 8, Boluke Line, Zango-Kulende quarters in the Ilorin East local government area of Kwara State on Sunday, was due to extreme suffocation.

It happened at about 2 p.m. when the three children were playing inside the car and mistakenly locked themselves in the parked vehicle.

The car, it was gathered, was borrowed by their father from his sister within the same premises of their quarters for quick domestic use.

The kids' mother, Shade Silifat, had gone out to buy noodles for the children’s school meals on Monday when the tragedy occurred.

Shade, who returned from where she went to buy noodles and discovered their footwear outside the parked car, raised an alarm after forcing the doors of the car open.

She reportedly fainted when she met the three children motionless as a result of suffocation inside the car.

Efforts were made to rescue the lives of the children as they were quickly rushed to Olutayo Clinic, very close to their residence, for medical attention.

The medical director, Dr Adeyemo, however, directed that they be taken to the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, Ilorin, where they were confirmed dead.
