A man is devastated over the sudden loss of his 3 children.

Serjo Bila, 38, of South Africa, said that his 22-year-old son, Sibongiseni, who is blind, had a good heart. When he was invited to a party in the neighborhood, he brought some cake home for his family.

He shared the cake with his father, his siblings, Mxolisi, 21, 9-year-old Koshi, and twins Thabile and Thabi, who are 6 years old.

The family enjoyed the cake and then went to bed. When Serjo woke up the next morning at his home in Daveyton, Ekurhuleni, he found 3 of his children dead.

Only he and the twins were still alive. He called the police and neighbors for help. Serjo and the twins were taken to the Pholosong Hospital and were released after it was determined that they are in good health.

The heartbroken father said that doctors found poison in the blood of his dead children.

“I lost three children in one day. I am lucky that my twins survived,” Serjo said. “The deaths of my other children left a hole in my heart,” he added.

Police are investigating the incident.
