The story of a little boy left in critical condition after a severe asthma attack touched the heart of a local promoter who scrambled to throw together a benefit to help his family.

If you drove by Flyin' Roosters Sunday you probably saw the car show fundraiser for little Andre Crespin of Fruita.

Two weeks ago Crespin was airlifted to a Denver hospital after suffering a severe asthma attack that stopped his heart.

Donovan Otero, owner of Lil Orange Hotrod Productions, heard about Crespin's emergency and put together the fundraiser to help his family raise money for medical bills. He hoped to raise $2,000.

Crespin is currently on a ventilator and doctors are waiting for him to be able to breathe by himself for two hours before they take him off.

If you would like to donate contact Otero at 970-640-3295.
