N.J. boys were alive for 13 hours in car trunk

Kids may have lived for up to 33 hours while police searched for them
CAMDEN, N.J. - Three boys who suffocated in a car trunk last month were trapped alive for at least 13 hours, slowly succumbing while police searched their neighborhood, prosecutors said Tuesday.
The boys, ages 5, 6 and 11, died between 13 and 33 hours after they climbed into the trunk on June 22, the Camden County prosecutor's office, citing part of an autopsy report. The deaths were ruled accidental.
Relatives searched for the boys for three hours and then called authorities. A two-day search that included dogs, helicopters and boats on the nearby Delaware River ended the night of June 24 when the father of one of the boys found them dead in the car trunk, just a few feet from where they had been playing.
