Three Children In Florida Die After Climbing Into Chest Freezer

Three young children playing outside in Florida have climbed into an unplugged chest freezer and died when they could not get out, authorities say.

The children, aged one, four and six, could not be revived when they were found at a home in Live Oak in north Florida, the Suwannee County Sheriff's Office said.

The youngsters lived at the house with the grandmother of two of the children and the other child's mother, officials said.

The sheriff's office said in a Facebook post that one of the women went inside to use the toilet and could not find the children upon returning.

The women searched the property and found the children in the freezer.

The sheriff's office said foul play is not suspected.
