A pregnant woman in southern China was found dead alongside her seven-year-old autistic son on Christmas Day in what police and emergency services said was the result of carbon monoxide poisoning, according to Chinese media.

The bodies of the child and the 32-year-old, who was three months pregnant, were discovered in a bedroom in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, on Christmas morning by the woman’s husband, the boy’s father, Shanghai-based news outlet Thepaper.cn reported on Tuesday.

The husband found charcoal still burning on a steel plate inside the room, and two letters from his wife – one addressed to him and another to her parents – on the kitchen table, the report said.

The wife had bought charcoal from a nearby convenience store the previous evening, it said.
