A  14-year-old Boston boy died of carbon monoxide during the blizzard.

Cops say he was helping his father shovel out their snowed-in car on Nazing Street Saturday morning when he decided to hop in to stay warm.

Snow covered the exhaust pipe, filling the car with fumes.

While neighbors tried to revive the boy… His father suddenly went into respiratory arrest.

Both were rushed to the hospital. The child was pronounced dead at the hospital.
