The boys and 17-year-old sister mushrooms were collected by relatives in a forest near a refugee center in Botkova Lena and then mistaken for a popular culinary species.
There may be confusion between hemlock (Amanidae foloides) and paracetamol (Macrolabiota prosera) mushrooms.
The youngest boy died Thursday, and the six-year-old underwent liver transplant surgery, but his brain was damaged and his condition was considered very bad. According to the French Press, he died this Friday (3).
The older sister responded well to treatment and had already been discharged.
Another similar incident was recently reported near Warsaw, according to the British newspaper The Guardian, where four-year-old men and Afghans ate poisonous mushrooms and were hospitalized.
