Five children suffocate to death in China

Feb 19 2013, 1:26am CST | by

Beijing, Feb 19 (IANS) Five children suffocated to death Monday in a deserted house that was being used to cure tobacco in southwest China's Guizhou province, authorities said.

Beijing, Feb 19 — Five children suffocated to death Monday in a deserted house that was being used to cure tobacco in southwest China's Guizhou province, authorities said.

The five children, all male and with ages ranging from four to six, were discovered by villagers at 5:40 p.m., reported Xinhua.

Four of the boys were dead when they were discovered, while the fifth died in hospital.

The children come from five different families. Their parents were helping out at a wedding dinner held for fellow villagers and had apparently left them unattended.

Initial investigation showed that the children died due to suffocation after straw in the abandoned house went up in flames.

The abandoned home is a mud-brick building with just one exit.

When it comes to divas, the ones who would generally come to mind are Beyonce, Britney Spears, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. But one who is clearly entitled to her rightful place on any list of arrogant, demanding, wildly overpaid female celebrities is none other than Hillary Clinton.

Sep 18 2014 5:03pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

One simple question deserves one simple answer. Should Scotland be an independent country? With a miniature sharpened pencil -- the kind you're given at a miniature golf course -- I could put a big "X" to indicate "Yes" or "No." I was at the polling station at 8:30 a.m., an hour and a half after you could begin voting at 7 a.m. My husband and I took our two children, age 4 and 9, with us to witness this momento ...
