Witbank – A mother and her three children were found dead in a bedroom at their home in Witbank on Monday morning, Mpumalanga paramedics said.

ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said the woman, believed to be in her 20s, her daughter, 9, son, 5, and a 7-month-old baby boy were found at their home in Cancer Street.

"ER24 paramedics were called to the scene by local authorities and arrived at approximately 08:15. Once on scene, paramedics were led into the home and into the bedroom where they found the patients," Meiring said.

The paramedics found the mother lying on the floor and her children in their beds.
