Child fighting for life after being left in car
A 4-year-old child is fighting for his life after a Palisade mother told investigators she left her two toddler sons alone in an SUV with the engine running before they were found unconscious. The other child died.
Authorities say 24-year-old Heather Jensen called 911 to report her 2-year-old boy William was unconscious, not breathing and he had no pulse. Jensen told dispatchers around 7 p.m. Tuesday that her 4-year-old boy Tyler was barely breathing.
William was pronounced dead at the scene, while Tyler was flown to St. Mary's Hospital before being transferred to Children's Hospital in Denver, where he was in critical condition.
Authorities say the investigation is continuing.
