Sheriff Joel Brott tells the St. Cloud Times (http://bit.ly/rv9ET3 ) that Olson's aunt had dragged him out of a detached garage after discovering him on the garage floor.

Olson was working on a vehicle inside the garage overnight. The sheriff says he was using a space heater attached to a propane tank to heat the garage.

Olson was airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis and was in serious condition.
