Three people have died after they were found unconscious in a backyard shed.
Emergency services rushed to a backyard shed in the far west of New South Wales after three people were found unconscious on Thursday about 4.30pm.
It’s believed a generator malfunctioned at a Broken Hill property on Thursday, and three people, believed to be a father and his two sons, collapsed overcome by dangerous petrol fumes.
Paramedics reported the trio were not breathing and called for more crews to race to the scene.
Three people, a 44-year-old man and his two sons, aged 16 and 23, were hospitalised but have since died. Police are now investigating with a crime scene established.
A report will be prepared for the coroner.
