CROWN HEIGHTS - The Thanksgiving holiday turned into a nightmare for members of a Crown Heights family after they got a mild case of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Shanefia Wray says she, her boyfriend and three children spent more than 24 hours in the hospital after becoming sick at their Park Place apartment.

Wray says when emergency medical responders arrived at the family's home, their carbon monoxide detectors immediately went off. Wray and her boyfriend say they had no idea their family was in danger because the apartment did not come with a carbon monoxide detector.

New York City requires building owners to provide at least one approved carbon monoxide alarm within 15 feet of each bedroom.
