Second child dies after being left in car
A relative says a second child has died after being left in a car.
According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel (http://tinyurl.com/cca3wea ), 4-year-old Tyler Jensen of Palisade was removed from life support Monday night. Robert Mathena of Clifton, the child's step-grandfather, says doctors still have questions about how the children died.
Authorities say 24-year-old Heather Jensen called authorities a week ago to report her 2-year-old boy William was unconscious and 4-year-old Tyler was barely breathing after she left them alone in her SUV.
William was pronounced dead at the scene, while Tyler taken to Children's Hospital in Denver, where he died.
