The coroner confirmed that no signs of abuse or violence were found on the body of the twins: an investigation opened
A shocking news has arrived in recent days from the United States of America, more precisely from the state of South Carolina, in Richland County. Two twins, Bryson and Brayden McDaniel, of suns 20 months, were found dead inside a car parked outside a kindergarten. The coroner confirmed that their death occurred from hyperthermia and that the two children had been locked in their cars for about 9 hours.
The summer season brings with it an infinite number of risks linked to high temperatures. The one that happened in South Carolina last Wednesday, September 1, is just the umpteenth unpleasant episode that happened precisely in such circumstances.
The victims called themselves Bryson and Brayden McDaniel, and they were almost two-year-old twins. Around 17:30 in the evening, one of their parents noticed that the children had remained locked in their car and that they were already unconscious.
Immediate the call for help and the arrival of the same at the Sunshine House kindergarten. Unfortunately, any attempt by doctors to resuscitate the babies has been in vain. For the two it wasn’t already there nothing more to do.
The first to divulge the news were of course the local American media. News then picked up and reported by journalists from all over the world.
Exams on the bodies of the twins
On the spot, together with the nurses and doctors, she also arrived Naida Rutherford, medical examiner operating in Richland County.
The coroner gave an interview, after having thoroughly examined the situation. He said about the little bodies of the twins no signs of abuse or violence were found and that death has come for hyperthermia, i.e. due to an excessive rise in body temperature. He also said that the two children spent about 9 and a half hours, before one of their parents noticed what had happened.
Investigators asked the parents if it was possible that they had forgotten the children. In this regard, however, no one has confirmed anything.
The two parents are obviously upset for what happened. Investigators have not yet ruled out a involvement by the nursery staff.
