Sevilla family die from food poisoning

A MOTHER, father and one daughter have died from food poisoning in Seville.

Local government spokeswoman Miriam Burgos told state broadcaster RTVE that a 13-year-old girl was the only family member to survive, having emerged Sunday from the intensive care unit of a Seville hospital after suffering from food poisoning.

Reports say the family had accepted free food from local stores, and both parents were unemployed.

The town hall said in a statement Sunday it had ordered three days of mourning.
