A father and son died in what investigators believe was an accidental carbon monoxide poisoning in Ozone Park. Police said that both Kuo-Kung Chen, 66, and his son Aaron Chen, 29, were found dead in their home on 101st Avenue at 90th Street Saturday evening.
There was no criminality suspected and the investigation is ongoing, according to the NYPD.
A family friend, who did not want to be identified, said that Kuo-Kung’s daughter Marien had planned to meet up with her father Friday night, and when he did not show up, she went to her family’s Queens home Saturday to check on them.
Police iniatially responded to the home for a “wellness check,” and then medics were called and pronounced both men dead. A dog named Mocha, which had apparently also been in the house, survived.
Police said Sunday carbon monoxide was the suspected cause of death.
As authorities performed their investigation Saturday night, Marien broke into tears several times and was comforted by friends.
A third person was also take to the hospital in serious condition, according to the Breaking News Network.
