Two young brothers died locked in trunk of mother's car

LONDON - A game turned tragic for two young brothers, who accidentally locked themselves in the trunk of their parents car, while trying to hide inside it. They were found dead about four hours after they were reported missing.

"Preliminarily, it appears that this is just a tragedy," said state trooper Don Trosper. "These boys were out playing and they accidentally got themselves locked in the trunk."

The bodies were found in the trunk of a 1996 car at their mother's home, Laurel County Coroner Doug Bowling said. Federal law requires cars made beginning in 2002 to have release latches inside the trunk.

Bowling identified the boys as 8-year-old Chase Baker and 11- year-old Coty Baker.

  4. Wow what a tragic story. My 4 year old closed the trunk lid on himself while I was loading it up for a picnic, but I realized where he was and was able to open it before anything bad happened to him. It still scared him bad enough that he hasn't wanted to get in the trunk since then, that was 10 years ago. I am so sorry for their loss, our children are an important part of our families, I know they will be missed.
