The Columbus Dispatch - - Faith&values - Staff and wire re­ports

TOLEDO — Po­lice said hospi­tal work­ers used three doses of the over­dose drug nalox­one to re­vive a 1½-yearold boy who tested pos­i­tive for opi­oids.

The child’s mother told po­lice in Toledo that her older son saw the tod­dler put a bag in his mouth that he found at a neigh­bor­hood park.

She said the tod­dler then took a nap Tues­day and that she found him un­re­spon­sive. Po­lice said the boy was treated at a hospi­tal and ad­mit­ted to its in­ten­sive care unit.

A Toledo po­lice spokesman said offi cers are in­ves­ti­gat­ing how the child over­dosed and how he got the drugs. They did not say what type of drug the boy in­gested.
