Five children have died after becoming locked in an unused deep freezer.

The bodies of the children, aged between three and seven, were found by their grandmother around 6pm yesterday in the South African agricultural town of Kakamas, Northern Cape.

Police believe the children, who were all cousins, became accidentally trapped during a game they were playing.

The freezer became locked and the children suffocated inside, foreign media reports.

It was unclear whether the freezer was switched on at the time.

An inquest is believed to have been opened into the incident.

This is the second case this week where children have died after becoming locked inside disused items.

Two toddlers were killed after playing with two others inside a disused car in Clermont, west of Durban. The vehicle became hot and the children were unable to escape.

When they were eventually spotted they were taken to hospital but two children didn’t survive. The other two are still in a critical condition, reportedly.
