Four Syrian refugees die from burning coal for heat in Lebanon

Youssef al-Dor, an official with Resala Health Ambulance Association, said the family used coal to warm their room on a cold night in a house in Kharayab, a southern village overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

An unnamed official from Fakih Hospital said the mother, 31, and her children ages 8, 7, and 4 were already dead on arrival. They were declared dead from asphyxiation.
