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.

Jul 25 2014 2:58pm CDT | Source: Big Government

This article originally appeared at Salon.com Rep. Kerry Bentivolio is a freshman House Republican who’s facing a primary challenger on Aug. 5.

Habitat For Humanity And MasterCard Create Affordable Housing To Support Small Business Owners
In Detroit, it's come down to matters of basic survival: keeping the water turned on, providing basic public services, determining which blocks to raze and which to save.
