Two Kids Suffocate to Death in their Home in Delhi Due To Smoke From Melting Plastic

Smoke from melting plastic of an overheated television set has claimed the life of two young children in Khoda residential colony bordering Delhi. The incident occurred on Friday night, when the boys, Lucky (4) and Ishu (2), were watching television.

Their father is a mechanic and mother a vegetable vendor. They both returned home late to find the room filled with dense smoke. The room did not have any ventilator, and the two children became unconscious while asleep. The parents found them lying unconscious on the floor and rushed them to the Lal Bahadur Shastri Hospital where doctors declared them dead.


The bodies were taken for an autopsy and later handed over to the family for cremation.
