CEDAREDGE, Colo. (AP) - One boy is dead and another is in critical condition after they were apparently exposed to carbon monoxide in a camper.
According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel, three youths were sleeping in a camper Sunday when something caused them to be exposed to carbon monoxide, an odorless, colorless gas that can cause brain damage or death.
A spokeswoman for Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center and Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children said Reid Gates died and Aaron Henrie was in critical condition.
A third youth was hospitalized in good condition.
