Vanessa Berrocal, from the Red Cross, confirmed that upon arrival at the site, both were dead and the daughter was unharmed.

According to some witnesses, the little girl had to walk more than a kilometer, alone, to her house, where she came to tell her siblings what had happened.

The family, apparently, lived in a condition of extreme poverty and in the community, everyone is dismayed because their children are now left without their parents.
