UPDATE: 10-month-old Released from Dayton Children's Following Overdose
DAYTON -- A 10-month-old who was taken to Dayton Children's Hospital following an accidental overdose has been discharged.
Emergency crews were called to the 1900 block of Deanwood just after 10 a.m. Sunday. As of Monday afternoon the child was back home.
Police tell us the child accidentally got into methadone his aunt's boyfriend had. The methadone was prescribed by a doctor. It is used to treat moderate to severe pain and can also be used to treat narcotic drug addiction.
A 911 call sheds some light on the events of Sunday morning.
Dispatcher: OK, ma'am, how's he doing?
Caller: He's OK right now he's still awake.
Dispatch: OK, is he still breathing OK?
Caller: Ah, he's breathing slow.
The mother knew her 10-month-old boy, Karter, was in trouble.
"I found some pills laying on my floor and I looked them on my phone and they are methadones," said Brittney Whitman, who told dispatchers they belonged to her sister's boyfriend; and her kids found them somewhere in her house.
"Where this thing could have been hidden, you've got 2 and 3 year olds, they can find things anywhere ... my understanding was they gave the baby Narcan in case," said Dan Whitman, Brittney's father.
He is staying with his grandchildren while she tended to her 10 month old at Dayton Children's.
"Brittney's a good mom and her situation is, you know, she acted in what was the best for the baby. Not take any chances, get him to the hospital," Whitman said.
Whitman is not being charged, and police are calling it an accident. That is something the baby's father's family is very concerned about since the 26-year-old mother was convicted in 2012 of attempted child abuse/endangering in Miami County.
Dan Whitman says his daughter is a single mom who does her very best.
"She's a good kid, she's a hard worker and she's a good mom ... a very, very loving mom."
