Girl Overcome by Fumes Released from Hospital
BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) — One of two young Champaign girls poisoned by carbon monoxide during a spring-break visit with relatives in southwestern Illinois is out of the hospital.
The Belleville News-Democrat reports that 10-year-old Jaysha Dunn was released last weekend, five days after being overcome by fumes from a running car in a closed garage at the Belleville home.
Seventeen-year-old Alicia Moore remains at the hospital in good condition.
St. Clair County authorities say the girls were found after another teen returned from school and discovered Dunn unresponsive on a couch. A neighbor summoned for help found Moore unresponsive in a car.
A sheriff’s investigator says Moore might have been charging her cell phone in the running car when she passed out.
