An unexpected death during Winter Storm Jonas has rattled our nation. But it wasn’t a direct cause of the storm in this case…carbon monoxide killed a mother and her son in New Jersey during the blizzard that ravaged through the East Coast this past weekend.

While her husband, Felix Bonilla, was outside digging the car out of the snow, Sashalynn Rosa, their daughter, 3, and son, 1, kept warm inside the car. Unbeknownst to anyone, the tailpipe clogged with snow, flooding the inside of the car with carbon monoxide. Both Rosa and their son were killed and their daughter critically injured within minutes — she is fighting for her life after being rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Bonilla’s father, and grandfather of the children, told NBC New York: “I can’t even express how I feel right now; I got no words. My son, he can’t even say nothing, he can’t even move, he can’t even talk.”

Isabel Carmona, one of the neighbors described the scene and said, “The paramedic, he cry, and the police cry; everybody cry.”

While everyone knows of the dangers of carbon monoxide, which is a color and odorless gas, authorities have released important information to caution the public: “Remove snow from car exhaust pipe before sitting in car and letting it warm up. Failure to remove snow can result in carbon monoxide poisoning. Be sure there is ample room for air to circulate in front and behind your car to allow any exhaust to dissipate and not build up around your car.”

Here’s What Your Novio is Really Doing When He is Alone

Ever wonder what your boyfriend is up to when he’s alone? Well, no surprise, a lot of it has to do with him being naked and touching himself.

The greasier, the more likely he is going to devour it. How else do you think the concha burger came to be?

He finally gets to explore all the smells his body makes.

This might sound weird to you, but guys take pride in the scents their bodies produce.

There’s a strict no-clothes policy in place.

This can’t be a surprise. He barely keeps his clothes on when you are around anyway.

And while he’s naked, he does think about you.

Maybe not how you want him to, but he totally does.

He practices his dance moves to impress your family at your cousin’s quince.

Plus it is just easier to clean with some Celia Cruz blasting in the house.

He definitely experiments with his pedos.

Whether it is lighting them on fire, catching them in a jar, or seeing how long he can make them last.

There is a lot of shitty television watching.

After all, channels like Spike and truTV were definitely made for men. #nobrainpowerneeded

Why do you think he never even dares to use it while you are around. *Hint: He doesn’t know what else to do with it.*

He works out…for a whole two pushups.

And then immediately goes to the mirror like:

“I’m feeling swole today.”

There is always time for him to sit still and just stare at his balls as they move around on their own.

Seriously! This is a thing. Just ask him.

And all that time alone gives him a chance to talk through some of his plans and life goals.

Even if it is just what he is going to have for dinner.
