Toddler on ventilator fights for his life as COVID takes toll on U.S. children

Toddler on ventilatorWhen her 2-year-old started feeling sick early last week, Tiffany Jackson didn't think it might be COVID-19.

No one else in the family was sick. Adrian James just had a bit of a cough. She gave him cough syrup and put a humidifier in his room.

But by Friday he was sweaty and his breathing was labored. Jackson took him to an emergency room in her small town of Mount Vernon, Illinois. Doctors and nurses there did a chest X-ray and swabbed him for COVID - and then airlifted the child to Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital in St. Louis, about 80 miles (129 km) away.

Jackson followed in a car, her grandmother at the wheel. They made the usually 90 minute-drive in about an hour.
