Three girls die after locking themselves in car

Three little girls were found dead this week in Philippine after they accidentally locked themselves in a family car where they suffocated.

According to Metro UK, the girls, Agatha Morales, nine, Shamel Alghela Morales, eight, and Pauline Keziah Morales, six, were playing together in Bataan province, the Philippines on May 13.

Agatha’s father Jessie Morales, 31, an oil refinery worker, returned home from work at 4pm and parked the green car outside their home.

But after going inside to eat, the girls were believed to have opened a door and climbed inside to play, before it locked behind them and they were unable to get out again.

A friend of the young girls noticed them four hours later at around 8pm. They were all lifeless inside the vehicle. She ran to call the parents of the girls, who rushed them to the hospital, where the three were pronounced dead.

The local police are now investigating the case to find out if there was negligence on the part of the parents.

Bataan Police chief Dennis Orbista said, “The father opened the door but the kids were not responding. He brought them to the hospital where they were pronounced dead due to suffocation.

“To parents of children who are of the same age of the victims, always watch over the children because out of curiosity, they play with all things in the surroundings.”
