NOT STARTING

I tried to jump start my 2004 Ford Ford today. The battery was completely dead. I started the Focus, it started right up. When I took the positive clamp off the battery of the truck I used to start it the Focus died. I checked the connection on the battery and they were tight. I looked at the fuses and didn't see any blown. If it is a blown fuse which one would it most likely be?

First charge the battery. The alternator has to charge the battery when you jump it but if it is completely dead, it will take time before you can remove the cables.

When I tried to jump it off again it will not do anything. I looked at the fuses but didn't see any that looked blown. Any ideas?
