Officials: Toddler revived with Narcan after overdose

ADAMS COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - Adams County parents are behind bars after sheriff's deputies said their one-year-old son overdosed Wednesday night.

Angel Hesler, 19 and Adam Boling, 21, are charged with child endangering after their toddler allegedly overdosed on opiates, said Adams County Deputy Randy Walters.

A woman, identifying herself as Angel, called 911 dispatch saying her one-year-old son was coughing, white and not moving.

Dispatch: "Do you think he got into something?" 

Caller: "I don't know. We don't have nothing here that he could get into anything that drug wise or anything like that."

At one point, the caller says her son was throwing up.

Upon arrival, Walters said deputies discovered that the child had overdosed.

"When deputies arrived on the scene. The situation appeared to be more of an overdose from what they found," Deputy Sheriff Randy Walters said.

Deputies said they found a crushed Mt. Dew can with a burn mark, a black and white marijuana grinder, a cut pink straw, and a prescription bottle containing marijuana seeds. They report also stated they found two white pieces of paper containing an off white powdery substance.

"We are not bad people. We would not do anything to harm any child... whether its our child or anyone's child we love all of our children," Boling's sister Brittany said.

Life squad members administered Narcan to the child. Air Care took him to Cincinnati Children's Hospital.

As of Thursday afternoon, officials said the boy is doing well.

Brittany said her nephew is fine and when they brought him home he was smiling and laughing.

Medical tests are being administered to determined what the child had made contact with.
