Right inside the car, police say Brittany Kurkowski was passed out and slumped over a car seat with a 5-month-old baby inside.

Police say she was in and out of responsiveness and her lips were a blueish tint.

Officers gave Kurkowski a dose of Narcan as paramedics began to treat the baby.

They say the 5-month-old was warm.

Paramedics took the baby to the hospital to be checked out.

When police asked Kurkowski what she took to make her so sluggish, she told them she had four Benadryl.

She was taken into custody, along with Kubasiak.

Police say they did a body search of Kurkowski and found a bag of heroin.

Monessen police say they then searched the car and found a total of two bundles of heroin, 14 empty stamp bags and three cut straws.
