And now for some good news: A tweet from KTHV reports that Leo Yang, the 5-year-old who was trapped in a car his mother drove into a lake, has been removed from a ventilator at Arkansas Children’s Hospital and is breathing on his own. His mother, Jinglei Yi (pictured in the photo above with Leo and father Dangyong Yang), died at a hospital after a delayed emergency call kept rescuers away for 30 minutes.
