MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. — A New Jersey couple is facing child abuse charges after police said a 2-year-old boy tested positive for methamphetamine and fentanyl.
On Jan. 13, first responders arrived at the couple's home after receiving a call about an unresponsive 2-year-old, the Times reported. The child, later identified as Drayton's son, appeared to be suffering from a drug overdose and was having trouble breathing, police said.
Crews rushed the toddler to a nearby hospital and gave him Narcan, the news outlets reported. He was later taken to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for treatment of brain swelling and is listed in critical condition, officials said.
