She made a simple mistake in the kitchen and ended up losing her entire family.
Maria is in the care of her relatives right now and she had no idea about what was happening to her family until it was too late.
One by one, each of the family members went to get some potatoes from the cellar but they never returned.
In that order, all of the family members went down to the cellar. Before anybody could alert the police or emergency services, they died.
Due to the door being open, the toxic fumes escaped and killed the entire family.
When potatoes are stored in a hot environment for a long time, they tend to produce some enzymes known as glycoalkaloids. These compounds become deadly and toxic as the potatoes grow old. Hence, the entire family died due to the toxic fumes.
