Kids found dead in the car.

Tragedy struck recently in Ibeshe area of Ikorodu, Lagos, after two children were found dead inside a car. One of the children, Olamipo Oluwaferanmi Kadiri, who was two years and three months old, was the last child of a management staff of the Lagos State Waste Management Authority, LAWMA while the other child, whose identity could not be ascertained, was a niece who only came visiting during the yuletide season.

Crime Alert gathered that the family resides at Oworo, Bariga area of Lagos. But they usually visited Ibeshe, where they just completed a building of their own, during weekends and festive periods.

During one of those visits, the older child who was barely four years old reportedly collected the car key from where it was kept in the sitting room and accompanied by little Olamipo, made straight for the garage where the car was parked.

She reportedly opened the car, went inside with Olamipo and shut the doors with all windows wound up.

Meanwhile, back in the sitting room, Mrs Kadiri reportedly called out on both children when she did not hear their voices for about an hour. A search as gathered, was conducted round the bedrooms apparently thinking they might have slept off in one of the rooms.

But apprehension set in when the children were not found.

Crime Alert gathered that as the search was extended outside the sitting room, a member of the search team screamed on sighting the children inside the car, motionless.

They were reportedly rushed to Lagoon Hospital where unfortunately, they were confirmed dead.

We were also made to understand that the children could not open the door to come out because they apparently touched the car remote. Nobody could tell whether they screamed or not, or whether they tried to open the door. But you know as children, they might not know the implication of being shut inside the car. It is an unfortunate incident that is difficult to imagine.”

Effort to reach the LAWMA manager failed as Crime Alert learnt she was yet to resume as at Monday.

This is so sad but we all have lessons to learn from this, dont keep your car keys wbere your kids can reach it.
