Did I miss something? What the hell happened?
Trying to find out how long it flew like that for.

Engine failure shortly after takeoff. Still on climb out north and west of the airport. Hadn't even made it to the front range yet.
Flight returned safely to DEN without further incident.
ETA - They were probably just past the Denver Departure / Center handoff point, and had likely just throttled up for their initial climb out to intermediate altitude. If something was going to happen, better there than 2-3 minutes before that point. Then the story might not have had as happy of an ending.
