Investigators say phosphine gas killed the four children when someone used "restricted use" pesticide Aluminum Phosphide as a poison to banish mice from the Amarillo, Texas home, The Daily Mail reports.
BSA Health System in Amarillo says five patients are in stable condition at its hospital. "When this chemical comes in contact with water, it creates Phosphine gas, which is highly poisonous and can cause pulmonary edema and respiratory failure". However, it has since been reported that the four Texas children who died are among eight siblings who lived in the trailer.
One of the children died at the scene, the other three individuals died at a local hospital.
