2 Kids Found Dead In A Car by sheyee(m): 7:59am On Jan 21, 2013
Tragedy struck recently in Ibeshe area of Ikorodu, Lagos, after two children were found dead inside a car. One of the children, Olamipo Oluwaferanmi Kadiri, who was two years and three months old, was the last child of a management staff of the Lagos State Waste Management Authority, LAWMA while the other child, whose identity could not be ascertained, was a niece who only came visiting during the yuletide season.

Crime Alert gathered that the family resides at Oworo, Bariga area of Lagos. But they usually visited Ibeshe, where they just completed a building of their own, during weekends and festive periods.

Collection of car keys

During one of those visits, the older child who was barely four years old reportedly collected the car key from where it was kept in the sitting room and accompanied by little Olamipo, made straight for the garage where the car was parked.

She reportedly opened the car, went inside with Olamipo and shut the doors with all windows wound up.

Meanwhile, back in the sitting room, Mrs Kadiri reportedly called out on both children when she did not hear their voices for about an hour. A search as gathered, was conducted round the bedrooms apparently thinking they might have slept off in one of the rooms.

But apprehension set in when the children were not found.

Crime Alert gathered that as the search was extended outside the sitting room, a member of the search team screamed on sighting the children inside the car, motionless.

They were reportedly rushed to Lagoon Hospital where unfortunately, they were confirmed dead.

A resident of the area who spoke on condition of anonymity said; “We were attracted by the shout. But no one could go into the compound because they are new people. Besides, they are not permanent here. It was later we heard that two children died of suffocation inside their car.

We were also made to understand that the children could not open the door to come out because they apparently touched the car remote. Nobody could tell whether they screamed or not, or whether they tried to open the door. But you know as children, they might not know the implication of being shut inside the car. It is an unfortunate incident that is difficult to imagine.”

Another close family friend who also spoke on condition of anonymity described the late Olamipo as an exceptional child. “That child was an intelligent child. She was always fun to be with. She was extraordinarily intelligent. Had she been alive, she would have been a star to be reckoned with.

That is why her parents are really devastated by the tragic incident. Her mother especially, is yet to come to terms with the rude shock of her daughter’s demise. She is really in a bad shape right now. Although Olamipo was the third child but she was indeed the family’s favourite because she always brought smiles to everyone’s face.”

Effort to reach the LAWMA manager failed as Crime Alert learnt she was yet to resume as at Monday.

Food for Thought/Action!!!
• Do you have car key control management at home?
• Share incident with members of your family and put control measures in place.
• Close all remedial action items immediately.

you dont know anything about the kids in q and that is a very insensitive remark to make considering you are even a woman
what is lousy about a kid playing in their fathers car
Unfortunately at this time, that proved costly but still that is not a good statement

What da french are you yapping about, please this story is tragic enough so don't add anger to the emotions I'm feeling right now.angry

Do you even know kids at all? Have you stayed with any before? So because they did what most children their age will do means they are lousy and spoilt? Take your time o.

RIP little ones.

Shocked to know that adults can reason this way concerning innocent and harmless kids.

Am a bit surprised too. Its not like they were there for 2days and ran out of oxygen. I think there is a carbon mono oxide problem with that car. I have stayed in a car, windows wound up for hours in a hot area sef waiting for someone. They should inspect that car well.

Though they did not mention the kind of car it is....vehicles are not so airtight that someone would suffocate in it after several hours.

Meanwhile, if the same car was submerged in water, they will say the kids drowned.

Yes, they should inspect it and investigate the incidence further.

Didn't you see the children's ages? Even some paper bags come with 'Keep away from children, to avoid suffocation' sign, let alone cars.

Remember, the report specify the car was in the garage. It could be airtight garage. In my case I can't stay in my car in hot day with all windows up without a/c on for 30min in open air.

May be the heat and the enclosure of the garage led to the suffocation. The times I slept over were nights, in one of the nights, I could feel cold breeze coming into the car from AC points on the dash board. Well, may they rest in peace. I also feel a four years old should be able to open a car door from inside.
