SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The Mormon church says two of its missionaries have died in Romania.
Church spokesman Scott Trotter says the 20-year-old missionaries died Friday from "apparent accidental natural gas asphyxiation."
They were identified as McKay Choy Burrows of Highland, Utah, and Jace Edwards Davis of Logandale, Nev.
Trotter says the two were serving in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Romania Bucharest Mission.
No other details were immediately available.
A person who answered the phone Saturday at the Burrows' family home in Highland said the family is not ready to talk to the media.
