LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It was a scary morning for one Shively father after he came home from work to find his two children unconscious.
Fire officials say his 17-year-old daughter and his 11-year-old boy had carbon monoxide poisoning.
The man was able to get them out of the house on Heaton Lane in Shively and to Kosair Children's hospital.
They're expected to be okay.
Firefighters say a carbon monoxide reading showed levels were extremely high. It's known as the silent killer, being both odorless and colorless. Officials recommend installing a detector where you sleep, and have your furnace or any gas appliances serviced by a professional.
