Boy, 6, leads police to bodies of his mother, brother in Spanish cave after being discovered by hikers; father arrested

Today 05:09 GMT

A six-year-old German boy led Spanish police Wednesday to a cave on the Canary island of Tenerife where they found the bodies of his mother and 10-year-old brother after apparently escaping his father and being found by hikers.

The boy, which the Spanish newspaper identified as Jonas, told authorities through a translator that his father had led him and his family to a cave and attacked him. The hikers took the boy, who doesn’t speak Spanish and appeared to be in shock, to the Civil Guard station where a local resident helped translate.
