Home Alone - Girl, 3, Survives for 2 Days After Mom Dies, twins Sandhya and Usha, Amy Winehouse.


We are very meticulous when looking into the security of our homes – placing additional locks, security alarms, engaging professional security firms, cameras and grilles to ensure we are safe inside and prevent from break-ins etc.

What if unforeseen circumstances ‘unexpectedly’ happen behind these closed doors? Being home alone and in cases of emergencies, have you the necessary plans to ensure that help is within reach?


Girl, 3, Survives for 2 Days After Mom Dies

A 3-year-old girl comforted herself with her favorite toy, ate cheese, leftover lasagna and milk for two days after her mother (28 years old) died unexpectedly in their New Zealand home.

Police coaxed Shylah to drag a coffee table to the door so she could reach the lock and unlock the door, before she told them, "Mummy won't wake up," Pete Silbery said. Read more here.


On Aug 26, 2011, 54-yr-old twins Sandhya and Usha Nadkarni were found dead in their flat at Ideal Colony in Kothrud.

The police suspect the Nadkarni sisters died due to suffocation caused after a pest control was conducted in their ground floor flat. "They had shut the doors and windows tightly after the pest control and had probably slept without any ventilation." Source here.

Amy Winehouse, 27, was found dead at her home in Camden Square NW1London on 26th July 2011.  Winehouse was apparently 'beyond help' when paramedics arrived.

Amy had a hugely successful musical career with the release of her debut album Frank in 2003, and the record considered her breakthrough album - Back To Black in 2006.

During her career, Winehouse won awards including five Grammy Awards, a Q Music Award for Best Album for Back To Black and a World Music Award in 2008 for World's Best Selling Pop/Rock Female Artist. Read more here.

  1. hi katrina, the 3 year old girl who lived and
    ate some leftover food and milk is a miracle survivor.
    She is lucky the food did not give her food poisoning.
    Cases of people who died of suffocation due to closed windows at home and in the cars are quite common.. its been published in the media over and over, yet the same careless mistakes happen every time.
    Some parents just dont bother much about the safety of their kids... and regretted not doing so, only after accidents happened or may be even death.
    Great post here- great reminder for us all

  2. My close friend, a widow is all alone as both her kids are studying overseas, she has all the alarms to her home. Living in an exclusive area, over 15yrs, house broken into, already 4times, luckily on all these incidences, she was not home.

    An active healthy elderly lady (80yrs old) I knew once had a stroke and was not able to move, her neighbour noticed the front porch lights all lit during the day.

    Suspecting something not usual, they climbed over her gate, peep thru the windows and saw her lying motionless at the living room. Problems here, some elderlies have children but insist on living on their own.

    She was saved because of her porch lights! Lesson learnt, now she agreed to have a full-time maid staying with her.

    These are the things that kept me wondering, Hope we can get some feedbacks here..

  3. My heart cried for pitiful.
    A gutsy little girl..hope she will turn out into a fine and happy young lady..such an angelic child.
