Officers found a 2-year-old boy wearing only a long-sleeve shirt, shorts and boots standing outside a Grand Forks home this morning when the temperature was minus 15 and the wind chill minus 38.


The toddler was brought into a squad car to warm up, and an ambulance later transported him to Altru Hospital, according to a release from police.

The boy is "doing fine" after spending what police suspect was a few minutes in the cold, Capt. Kerwin Kjelstrom said.
