The parents, Michael Carney and Amber Halford, did not have a phone, so they put the boy in their car and began driving to the hospital. They nearly got into an accident at 124th Avenue and 12th Street, and that is where they flagged down the other driver for help calling 911.
A woman at a nearby dairy farm knew CPR. She rushed over to help the boy until emergency crews arrived.
Trenton was first taken to a Plainwell hospital, then transferred to Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, where he died Tuesday.
Allegan County deputies are still investigating the incident.
