A four-year-old Western Wisconsin boy, Aiden Foehser, was hospitalized at Children’s Hospital in St. Paul on Saturday after sudden cardiac problems.

Chris Foehser of Siren told KSTP, that his son Aiden had the flu for approximately a week before suddenly becoming unresponsive.

Aiden was first rushed to a Western Wisconsin hospital. but was later flown to Children’s Hospital in St. Paul. Foehser said at one point that his son went into cardiac arrest and didn’t have a heartbeat.

Foesher describes Aiden as his ‘little buddy.’ “If you would see him, you would see me. He loves the outdoors and making fires… he’s just a rambunctious little boy who loves to make his mom and dad happy.” He said Aiden had always been healthy, and has no underlying condition.

A spokesperson from the Hospital says Aiden is in critical but stable condition, as of Tuesday afternoon.

A family friend has set up an account for anyone who would like to donate to help the family with expenses. Donations can be made to the ‘Aiden Foehser Benefit’ at any Bremer Bank location.

Foesher said he wants to thank everyone who has kept Aiden in their prayers and everyone who has come by to visit.
