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.
