In India, a pregnant woman and her husband are burned to death in a car on the way to the hospital for the birth of their child. It is still unclear why the fire in the vehicle in the state of Kerala broke out on Thursday, according to the local television station NDTV, citing the police.

The couple then went to the hospital when the woman felt contractions. When the car suddenly caught fire, only the four passengers, including a child, could have escaped from the car. They were not injured, police said. The cause of the fire is now under investigation, it said.
