A crash in Nelson Township Tuesday morning took the life of a 2-1/2 year-old boy and sent several others to the hospital.

According to Sgt. Eric Rakow, of the Kent County Sheriff Department, a Ford  F150 truck was heading northbound on Myers Lake Avenue about 10:15 a.m. Tuesday morning, June 25, when the driver ran the stop sign at 17 Mile and hit a westbound red Ford Explorer carrying a Cedar Springs mother and her three children.

One of the children, Oscar Zuniga, age 2, was ejected from his car seat and died at the scene. Another child, three-year-old Alex Salgado, was taken to the hospital by AeroMed with serious head injuries. One-year-old Gretta Salgado and the driver, Paula Zuniga, 33, were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. All were from Cedar Springs.

Toddler found unresponsive in pond


Neighbor helped save boy

 

A 20-month-old Greenville boy is recovering after he fell into a neighbor’s pond Saturday and nearly drowned.

According to Michigan State Police, Konnor Baker was outside with a family member Saturday morning when he went missing.  He was found a short time later in the pond, completely unresponsive. Neighbor Raymond Case performed CPR until Michigan State Police Trooper Patrick Agema and Montcalm County EMS arrived. A paramedic took the child to the ambulance and tried to resuscitate him, but the paramedic could not find a pulse, and the toddler did not respond to any stimulus.

Konnor was transported to Sheridan Community Hospital, where resuscitation efforts continued, and Konnor’s heart finally restarted, and he began breathing on his own. He was then airlifted to DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, where he is recovering.
