Denver (AP) One woman is dead and another has been hospitalized after authorities found high levels of carbon monoxide at an apartment complex near the University of Denver.
Denver’s Chief Deputy Coroner Michelle Weiss-Samaras says 23-year-old Lauren Johnson died Monday after being taken from a third-floor unit at Josephine Place Apartments.
Authorities say a woman called 911 shortly before 5 p.m. Monday saying she felt woozy.
Firefighters discovered the woman groggy when she answered the door. A woman in a nearby apartment was found unconscious.
Both were taken to a hospital, where Johnson died.
Denver Fire Department Lt. Phil Champagne says concentrations of carbon monoxide were as high as 1,500 parts per million, and that 1,200 parts per million can be fatal.
