Woman, son killed in blaze found in bathroom as apartment burned
April 18, 2014, 05:00 AM

A woman and her 3-year-old son died after they were found trapped in a bathroom in their two-story public housing apartment in San Francisco’s Sunnydale neighborhood Wednesday morning, fire officials said.

Ester Ioane, 32, was pronounced dead in the apartment at 76 Brookdale Ave. after firefighters arrived at 9:54 a.m. Her son, William Santana, was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital but did not survive, according to the fire department and medical examiner’s office.

Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White said the first floor living room area was fully involved in flames when firefighters arrived, and while there were smoke detectors in the room they apparently didn’t warn the mother and son in time.

She called the loss of the mother and son a “tragedy.”
