A brother and sister suffocated to death last night after getting locked in a small ice chest.
San Jose police say the deaths appear accidental.
The father of the kids, ages 3 and 4, was in the home at the time. He tells police he became worried after not hearing from them for more than half an hour.
He found them in a back bedroom in what police describe as an old-fashioned ice chest or hope chest.
Emergency crews tried to revive the kids, but the children had already stopped breathing and entered full cardiac arrest.
