Couple found unconscious in room, baby dies in Ondo 

    Published By:

    A 29-years-old woman, identified as Tawa and her husband were found unconscious while their 5-month-old baby was already dead inside their room in Owo, the headquarters of Owo Local Government Area of Ondo State.

    The state police command on Saturday said it’s had begun an investigation into the cause of the death of the woman and her baby.

    A source said “the couple bought a new generator a few days before the incident and they put the generator on Thursday evening before going to bed, raising suspicion that the incident must have been caused by the generator’s fume.

    According to the source, the family was met in critical condition on Friday. While the baby was already dead, the couple were unconscious and were quickly rushed to the Federal Medical Centre, Owo, where the wife gave up the ghost and the medics were battling to save the life of the husband.

    “When the deceased’s elder sister did not see her at work on Friday afternoon, she became worried. So she and some co-workers went to their house to check them.

    “When they got to their house, they met the door locked and had to forcefully break in and were shocked to see the couple in a state of coma while their baby was already dead. So they rushed them to the FMC where the wife died at the hospital and the husband in a critical condition.”

    Conforming the incident the state Public Relations Officer of the police command, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami said, “We can’t say exactly what caused the incident for now. Some are saying it was caused by generator fume, but an empty bottle of snipper was also found in the room. So it may be that the couple sprayed snipper into the room before going to bed. So investigation is ongoing on the matter.”
