Polk girl died from poisoning from generator, officials say

A 7-year-old Polk County girl died Wednesday from apparent carbon-monoxide poisoning at a home with a generator running inside after Hurricane Irma, authorities said.

Terryn Wilson's mother, Shashunda, reportedly called 911 Wednesday morning and told dispatchers her daughter apparently died in her sleep. She said her daughter was sleeping next to her and appeared to be dead.

Polk County Fire Rescue found Shashunda Wilson on the front porch of the home when they arrived.

Shashunda told detectives she recently got a generator because she lost power during Hurricane Irma and it was the first time she had used one.

After it was safe to enter the home, crews opened the windows to the home and found the 7-year-old dead in the bed. No other people were affected.
