LOUISVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18) — A man and his 3-year-old son have died while his 7-year-old daughter is fighting for her life after the three were found unconscious Wednesday morning in an enclosed garage, Louisville police said.

Authorities said the case appeared to be “a horrific accident,” based on witness accounts.

Officials said police were called out around 9 a.m. to the 9900 block of Plaudit Way to reports of a man and two children found unconscious in an enclosed garage.

All three were taken to Southwest Hospital, where 39-year-old Juvenal Garcia Mora and his son, Cruz Isaac Garcia, were pronounced dead. The 7-year-old girl later was taken to Norton Children’s Hospital, where she was listed in critical condition.

Police continue to investigate the case.
