A Solebury Township family was hospitalized Wednesday morning after they were overcome by carbon monoxide fumes from a gas generator, police said.
A young boy was suffering convulsions when the fire department arrived about 4:40 a.m., Solebury police Chief Dominick Bellizzie said.
The father (no age given); mother, 46; and boys, ages 4 and 7, were being treated at St. Mary Medical Center and were doing well, the chief said. He withheld the victims’ names.
The generator was running in the family’s garage with the door open, but fumes “permeated the house and sickened the family,” Bellizzie said.
