EAST GREENBUSH, NEW YORK-  A mother said to be depressed over her son's suicide killed her other two children and herself using nitrogen gas. They suffocated.

It happened in a suburb of Albany, New York. Police found the mom and her two kids, ages six and nine unconscious in their home.

Paramedics tried CPR for about half an hour before the three were taken to a hospital where they died.

Police say the mother, 47-year-old Angela Mtambu, was recently released from a mental hospital after a breakdown over the death of her 23-year-old son.
