Grand Lake 3-year-old dies of head injuries

In a press release Monday from the Grand County Sheriff’s Office, it was announced that 3-year-old Daisia Derzon of Grand Lake died early Saturday morning at Children’s Hospital in Aurora.

The child died of “closed head injuries” that she sustained at her home on Wednesday, Jan. 9. The Sheriff’s Office reported that at 12:57 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 9, its dispatch center received a 911 call reporting an “unresponsive 3-year-old child” at a residence in the Grand Lake area.

Emergency units from Grand County EMS and Grand Lake Fire Department as well as Sheriff’s deputies responded to the residence. The child was taken by ambulance to the Granby Medical Center for treatment and later transported to Children’s Hospital.

In Monday’s press release, it was reported that an autopsy was performed Sunday. Grand County Coroner Brenda Bock said the results of the autopsy won’t be available until later this week.

The Sheriff’s Office press release stated the investigation is “ongoing into the cause of the child’s injuries.” Investigators from the Grand County Sheriff’s Office as well as District Attorney’s Office and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation are involved in the case.

The Sky-Hi Daily News will update the public about this case when additional information becomes available.
