SUWANNEE COUNTY, Fl. – Three Children were found dead Sunday night after being trapped inside a freezer.
“Anytime you have children and something like this, especially at their age. It really really breaks your heart. Words don’t describe how devastating any of this was to work last night,” says Suwannee County Sheriff Sam St. John
Deputies say the children, ages six, four and one, were in their backyard when the mother of the four-year-old went inside to use the restroom. That’s when deputies say all of the children climbed into the unplugged freezer chest and the door shut behind them.
The woman came back out and couldn’t find the children. She and another woman later found them in the freezer not breathing.
Deputies say they don’t suspect foul play.
