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….so sad!
