A look at how deputies saved the child and what happened leading up to the incident

ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) - The Anderson County Coroner's Office announced that one man died and two were injured from carbon monoxide poisoning on Tuesday morning. 

Officials said emergency crews responded to the parking lot of the Lowes on Highway 28 Bypass for reports that two adults and a child were unconscious inside a vehicle. 

According to officials, the investigation showed that the two adults left the vehicle running while using illicit drugs. This allowed carbon monoxide to fill the car and expose all of the occupants.

The Coroner's Office identified the victim as 29-year-old Christopher Alexander from Anderson.

Officials said this investigation is still ongoing.
