Sad! Nine South African Children Die After Getting Trapped In Freezer, Car

Five children have died after getting accidentally trapped in an unused deep freezer in South African's agricultural town of Kakamas in Northern Cape. The bodies of the children – aged between three and seven – were discovered by their grandmother on Wednesday (20 January).

Police said that the children, who were all cousins, accidentally got locked in the freezer while playing.

"We do not suspect any foul play at this stage. It is believed the kids were playing when the deep freezer accidentally locked," police spokeswoman Dimakatso Mooi was quoted as saying.

In a similar case earlier this week, four toddlers got trapped inside a disused car in Clermont near Durban. The children got trapped in the car and were unable to escape when the vehicle started to heat up and died in the process.
