    A family is asking for help in saving their sick child's life.

    Julia Salas, only 17-months-old, is in a coma at Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale.

    In April, she arrived from Spain with her family for what was supposed to be a three-week vacation. But within days, she developed a respiratory infection. Now doctors said she will need a double lung transplant.

    The family is trying to find a medical facility in the U.S. that can perform the operation. In the meantime, they're asking for help to pay for her surgery and other medical expenses.
