TRAGEDY: Woman Weeps Uncontrollably After Losing 5 Children In Horrific Fire Incident On Her Birthday [PHOTOS]

A St. Louis mother desperately tried to save her five children after a devastating apartment blaze on her birthday.

The fire broke out in the early hours of Friday morning in an apartment where they had been staying with their mother and grandparents after their last home burned down just five months ago.

The mother of the children, 34-year-old Sabrina Dunigan, left home to drive someone to work and left the children alone at home. When she returned she discovered the home engulfed in flames, authorities said.

She tried to run into the burning building several times to save her children but was unsuccessful.

Five crews from the East St. Louis Fire Department arrived to find two of the children dead inside a bedroom and three other children unconscious on the floor.

Two of the unconscious children died as firefighters were rushing them out of the building. The fifth child died on the way to the hospital, St. Clair County Coroner Calvin Dye said.

The victims were identified as nine-year-old Deontay Dunigan, seven-year-old twins Heaven and Nevaeh Dunigan, four-year-old Jabari Johnson, and two-year-old Loyal Dunigan, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The children’s maternal grandparents – Greg Dunigan and his wife, Vanicia Mosley – had been sleeping in a sectioned-off room away from the kids, the grandfather told the Post-Dispatch.

Greg Dunigan told the paper he tried to get to the children but the flames were too strong. He and his wife, who is blind, jumped out a back window to safety.

Family members told KSDK News that the tragedy took place on Dunigan’s birthday.

Sabrina Dunigan, who works with her father trimming trees, was a single parent.

The family had lived in the apartment for a short time after another home burned down five months ago, neighbours said.

The whole family escaped injury in that blaze.

Their current one-bedroom unit had reportedly been converted by the family to house the whole family.

On Monday, friends, neighbours and community leaders gathered at the Greater St. Mark’s Church of God and the grounds at Sunset Gardens of Memory Cemetery on Saturday for memorial services they helped pay for.

The family welcomed the large crowd and members of the media who attended Saturday’s services. Empowerment of Grace, a St. Louis church, also live-streamed the three-hour service on its Facebook page, where as many as 260 people were watching at times.

They were all laid in pink customised coffins with their photos printed on them.

Russia Cuts Off Gas Supplies To Bulgaria And Poland

The Russian energy giant Gazprom says it has cut off all gas deliveries to both Bulgaria and Poland after both countries refused to start paying for the supplies in roubles.

Earlier, both Polish and Bulgarian energy providers said they had received official notices from the Russian gas supplier that deliveries were due to be cut.

Gazprom’s announcement comes after some confusion earlier this morning, when data showed gas supplies into Poland through Belarus temporarily reduced to zero before resuming.

JUST IN: Ghana Records Two New Cases Of Omicron COVID-19 Variant

 

BA.2, the new Omicron variant that led to a surge of new COVID-19 cases in Europe, has now overtaken the U.S. as the most dominant version of the virus throughout the country. This latest data estimate is from a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, whose director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, predicted that BA.2 would quickly become dominate in the U.S

The first case of the BA.2 was initially identified in the U.S. back in December. Meanwhile, scientists have been closely watching BA.2—which is now the third of the genetically distinct varieties of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

The rapid growth of BA.2 is due partially to its eight gene mutations that spike protein on the virus’s surface, something that is not found in the previous strain, BA.1.

Although BA.2 is more transmissible than BA.1, as of now there are no signs that it causes more severe illness and it’s shown that vaccines continue to protect against the worst outcomes.
