NEW YORK — A 3-year-old girl was killed in a car fire after her father allegedly set a fiery death trap in New York, police said Monday morning.
The New York Fire Department responded shortly after 9 p.m. Sunday after a passerby saw the car parked at an intersection and called 911, officials said.
The article goes on to state the following:
Firefighters arrived to find a silver 2008 Audi sedan engulfed in flames with the doors of the car chained shut, police sources told WPIX.
Witnesses told responders they saw a girl “burning” in the vehicle. Zoey Pereira was found on the back seat of the car, fire officials said.
The latch of the chains bolted on the doors gave way because of the heat, and firefighters were able to get the child out, FDNY sources said.
Pereira was taken to a hospital, where she died from her injuries. Firefighters found two fuel canisters and a propane tank inside of the car, they said.
