FLINT, MI (WTVB) - It’s another winter hazard.  The first lengthy stretch of sub-freezing temperatures has seen the deaths of five people in Eastern Michigan from what is believed to be Carbon Monoxide poisoning. Two were found dead Monday in a home in Macomb County’s Bruce Township. Then two adults were found dead in a home in Flint, and an 11-year-old barely breathing. Relative Thomas Davison says the boy died later at the hospital. Police have released the names of the victims: 43-year-old LeTroy Edwards, 37-year-old Selena Carranza and 11-year-old Jason Cobbin. Test results confirming the cause could take a few weeks. Such accidents are the reason why safety experts recommend carbon monoxide detectors in homes.
