Ohio parents arrested on child endangerment charge
An Ohio couple was arrested and charged with child endangerment after their eight-year-old son overdosed on heroin last month, authorities confirmed.
On 11th of January, Charles Dowdy called police to his home in Berea, a suburban area southwest of Cleveland. Police found that the child was unresponsive, with his lips turning blue. His father was doing chest compressions on him.
After feeling a pulse, the officers took the boy to Southwest General Health emergency center, where doctors managed to save his life.
Police investigators found some banned drugs and syringes inside the home. During questioning, the boy’s father Dowdy and mother Danielle Simko confessed that they had used heroin earlier that day and hid the drug and some prescription pills inside the boy’s socks and in a toy watch.
The boy’s urine was tested and found positive for the potentially lethal drug heroin.
Dowdy and Simko were immediately taken into custody and charged with child endangerment. During their arraignment late last week, a judge set their bond at $150,000. The couple’s next court hearing is slated for Feb. 22, 2017.
