West Nile virus detected in Boulder County

LONGMONT (AP) - Health officials are urging residents to be cautious after the West Nile virus was detected in mosquitoes in Boulder County.

Dan Wolford, Longmont's parks, open space and greenways manager, says the virus-carrying insects came from a pool of mosquitoes from five of the 11 locations that are sampled in the city each Sunday.

The Longmont Times-Call reports (http://bit.ly/1c62ksn ) that so far this year, mosquito pools in two other Colorado counties - Larimer and Mesa - have tested positive for the virus.

Human infections can occur without symptoms or can cause mild or severe illness, fever and aches. Infections can also lead to chronic disability and even death.

Health officials encourage people to wear insect repellent, drain standing water and limit outdoor activities at dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.

1-year-old Denver boy falls from moving car

DENVER (AP) - A 33-year-old Denver man has been arrested on suspicion of negligent child abuse after police say his 1-year-old son was seriously injured when he fell from a moving car.

Police spokeswoman Raquel Lopez says the boy and an older sibling were riding in the car in the Green Valley Ranch area at about 9:30 p.m. Friday when one of the children apparently opened a back door and the boy fell out. The 1-year-old had been restrained in a car seat.

The Denver Post reports (http://bit.ly/12bbpP5 ) the father, Ross Bobby McCoy, could also face charges of leaving the scene of an accident involving bodily injury and driving without a license. Police say he contacted them shortly after leaving the scene.

He was arrested in Aurora on Saturday.

It's unclear how fast the car was traveling.
