Three residents of the Sudanese city of Port-Sudan have frozen to death in a fridge while seeking shelter from the heat, local media said on Thursday.
Enterprising local businessmen set up the banana refrigerator as a cool-down facility for the melting Sudanese. They charged 5 Sudanese pounds per hour (about $2) for people to sit inside it, local media said.
Port-Sudan medical officials said at least 13 people had suffered from heatstroke over the latest week.
August is the hottest month in northeastern part of Sudan.
