A 1-year-old baby was rescued from a hot car after two adults overdosed inside, police said.
When officers arrived a woman told officers the infant appeared to be sweating and she removed the baby from the car, WJW reported.
Cody Powell was turning blue and was not breathing. Michelle Hall was unconscious lying across Powell’s legs, officers said. Both suspects were given Narcan and then taken to the hospital, WJW reported.
A search of the vehicle uncovered a syringe. At the hospital, Hall told investigators she fell asleep after taking multiple prescription medications, WJW reported. Powell told an officer he bought heroin and he and Hall injected it, WJW reported. Hall told officers that was the last thing he remembers.
Powell and Hall were charged with endangering children, WJW reported. The child was placed in the care of the Mahoning County Child Protective Services.
