Pennsylvania parents Kristen Bristow and Charles Salzman Jr have been arrested and charged with aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of the child.
Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid similar to morphine but is fifty to hundred times more potent.
Authorities say Bristow and Salzman were allegedly asleep in the front seat of their car while their eleven-month-old son overdosed on fentanyl in the back.
Salzman’s mother told police she went to check on the couple Wednesday and found the child unconscious and slumped over while his parents were either asleep or not reacting.
Emergency responders gave the child three doses of Narcan.
He’s expected to survive.
Bail is set for Salzman and Bristow at $150,000 each.
