The father of the four children who died after the incident in Nor Hachn, Armenia, had rushed to a Ukrainian airport to return to Armenia, but was detained for failing to complete the migration document—due to rushing, ArmLur.am reports.
The parents of these four deceased children had left them to the care of their grandmother, and they live in Ukraine. They have been separated for many years.
According to a source of the website, the father of these kids asks that he be released, so he can at least attend the funeral of his children and mother.
These kids were being raised by their 77-year-old grandmother, and her other son was helping her take care of these children.
As reported earlier, a woman and her four grandchildren died in a tragic incident in Armenia’s Kotayk province.
They were found by police in an apartment in the town of Nor Hachn on Saturday afternoon.
According to preliminary reports, Zhanna Simonyan, 77, and her grandchildren – Eduard, 16, Serine, 12, Tigran, 15, and Zhanna, 14, – died of carbon monoxide poisoning. Two bodies were found in the bathroom and three in the bedroom.
