A horrifying scene in Salina this morning, as a 6-year-old child is dead and her 14-year-old brother seriously injured.
Onondaga County Sheriffâ??s Detective Jon Seeber says â??The childrenâ??s father called 911 just before 7:00 am Friday when he found his two children unconscious in their Carlton Drive home.â?? Deputies, the Mattydale Fire Department and the Liverpool Fire Department responded to find the two children unconscious. They were rushed to Upstate University Hospital where the 6-year-old girl was pronounced dead and the 14-year-old boy is listed in serious condition.
Right now, investigators are interviewing family members, and say the home is being treated as a crime scene. There is no word right now on what happened to the children.
We have a crew on the scene and will have more information as it becomes available.
