(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Two Asian expatriates were found dead in their car on early Tuesday morning in Izki.
Preliminary investigations showed that they died from inhaling carbon fumes leaking from the car's exhaust. The car's engine was on when their bodies were found by an ROP patrol team in Izki's Tawi al Aqba area at around 3.30am. To the team it looked like the two were asleep inside the car.
Officials then opened the car's door only to find them dead. The ROP has warned motorists against sleeping inside vehicles with engines running and against burning coal and wood inside closed spaces.
