Sarah Owens had a full year ahead of her. She’d just delivered triplets not long before, and she was set to relocate. Now that she has to change three times the amount of diapers, add in packing up the house and moving into a new home, it’s enough to make anyone cry. Sarah is overjoyed with her 5-month-old triplets, Ethan, Noah, and Charlie Owens.

Because they were born prematurely, the single mother had a lot on her plate. With the father out of the picture, she was left to care for the children and make sense of her life. Moving to a nicer house was part of this difficulty. However, according to her neighbors, she did an outstanding job.

It’s difficult to put yourself in other people’s shoes and try to understand their perspective on things. The fact is, though, that being a single mother is tough – especially when you’re the one who has to worry about three children. However, neighbor Anne Way praised Sarah Owens for doing an outstanding job.

“Their mum doted on them, she is a lovely girl and a good mother who gets lots of help from her parents. They were beautiful little boys and coming along well.”

“She was often seen wheeling the triplets around estate – they were all boys and she doted on them,” another neighbor said.

Owens resided in a tiny home with her triplets in Bridgend, Wales. But everything changed on a Saturday morning when Sarah went into the house to check on the three boys and discovered that Charlie and Noah had stopped breathing.

As soon as Sarah saw her boys’ lifeless bodies, she knew something was wrong. She called for help and tried to remain calm, but rescuers could not revive Charlie and Noah. In an instant, Sarah had lost two of her children.

Anne Way said, “It was awful, I saw a fireman carrying one of the babies out in his arms. The poor little thing was gray in the face, I would say he was already dead. They worked on the other one in the ambulance but there was nothing they could do.”

The surviving triplet, Ethan, was completely unharmed. His mother, on the other hand, is inconsolable.

Two of the triplets died in the night, and investigators are attempting to determine how. Sudden infant death syndrome is still possible, but they also believe it might have been carbon monoxide poisoning.

Carbon monoxide is colorless and odorless, and it’s difficult to detect when you’re exposed to harmful amounts of gas. That’s why you need a monitor.

More than 150 Americans die each year from carbon monoxide poisoning, often due to faulty appliances.

Owens was preparing her family for a move because the landlord had just sold the house out from under them at the moment of the accident.

Since the accident, the triplets’ godmother, Siobhan Boyd, has established a GoFundMe campaign to assist Sarah with “financial stress.”

“It’s dreadful for her – how will she ever get over something like that?” one neighbor said.
