BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. - A 5-year-old Colorado Springs boy is in a coma after he was found unconscious in a hot tub over the weekend.
Randy Marck said his grandson, Jayden Huller, may have wandered away and climbed into the hot tub by accident.
According to KKTV-TV, the boy was airlifted from Breckenridge to Children's Hospital in Denver on Saturday.
The accident occurred at Grand Lodge. A portion of the Grand Lodge is under construction, though guests are still staying there. Police say the hot tub was open for use despite the construction.
Jayden is currently listed in serious condition.
KKTV spoke with his mother, who said he has so much brain damage that if he comes out of the coma he likely will never be able to walk again. Read more at KKTV.com.
