WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Two children who were brought to Trumbull Memorial Hospital Tuesday unresponsive and then treated for a drug overdose have been released from the hospital.
The children, both under 2 years old, were brought to the hospital by their mother. Both children were unresponsive, according to Warren police.
Hospital staff used the anti-overdose drug naloxone to revive the children. They were taken to Akron Children’s Hospital in Akron where they were treated and released Thursday to Trumbull County Children Services.
Trumbull County Children Services Executive Director Tim Schaffner said that the kids have been placed in a foster home. If the board determines that there is family member with which the kids can safely stay, they will place them there.
“Our preference is always to have them be with a safe family member. Until we can determine who that is, they will be in foster care,” Schaffner said. “At this point, to my knowledge, none have been identified, but it is still pretty early. There are a lot of unanswered questions.”
Schaffner said the next step is to arrange supervised visits with the family so there isn’t an interruption in the family bond.
Warren Police on Wednesday said they are investigating Carlisa Davis, the mother of two children. They say she is their main suspect.
Warren Police Captain Robert Massucci said the kids were breathing, but in an unnatural manner, when police first saw them. Warren Police Detective Nick Carney said the kids, “were in a situation they shouldn’t have been in.”
Police believe that the kids had opiates in their system but are waiting for toxicology reports to identify the drug.
