Three Sisters Died After Falling Into A Truck Filled With Grain


The three sisters identified as 13-year-old
Catie Bott and twins Dara and Jana Bott,
both 11, died after falling into a truck filled
with grain despite frantic rescue efforts at
the farm in Withrow, Alberta. Family
members had rushed to free them from the
truck of canola seed and administer CPR
after the accident, but two of the sisters
died at the scene and another died later in
hospital.
In a statement, the girls’ parents Roger and
Bonita Bott thanked medics who had tried
to save their children. “Our kids died living
life on the farm,” they said. “It is a family
farm. We do not regret raising and
involving our kids Catie, 13, Dara, 11, Jana,
11, on our farm. It was our life.”
The family’s pastor, Brian Allan, added: “This
is what they really loved to do. If there is
something to be said for a family working
together was the bonding.” Authorities said
the girls had been playing on the grain
truck when they somehow suffocated in
the seed.
