An unidentified couple overdosed on Xanax, and possibly heroin and fentanyl, while in the care of a small child on Tuesday night, in North Fort Myers.
According to NBC 2 News, “Lee County deputies responded to the home after the caller stated a woman possibly overdosed on Xanax. When they arrived, deputies found a man performing CPR on the woman in the bedroom. A baby boy was by their side.
The woman was breathless and blue. She had a pulse, but remained in cardiac arrest, according to the sheriff’s office.
The responding deputy told the man to take charge of the child. When he did, they noticed he became unresponsive and also stopped breathing. Both adults were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital. EMS suspected they overdosed on opiates — possibly heroin or fentanyl.
Deputies later found marijuana and drug paraphernalia in the home. They notified the Department of Children and Families who took the child into their custody.
Investigators said the child had no crib, suitable food or drink, and lived in filthy conditions.”
