SUWANNEE, COUNTY, FL (WNBW/WGFL) The bodies of three children, ages 1, 4, and 6, have been recovered from a chest freezer that was left outside a home in rural Suwannee County, Florida.

Sheriff’s deputies say they responded to a 911 call Sunday night after the caller told dispatchers the three children were found not breathing.

Deputies say the adults who were home at the time told them the children were playing in the yard when they climbed inside a chest freezer that had recently been left at the residence but was not plugged in. 

All three children were taken to a hospital, but deputies say resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful.
