HOWLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – Two men have now been charged as a result of a suspected overdose at a Howland gas station on Saturday.
Michael Donadio, 29, is charged with endangering children and possession of drug abuse instruments, while 22-year-old Jacob Tocco is charged with possession of drug abuse instruments.
Police said Donadio was found unconscious on the ground next to a vehicle at the gas station. Tocco was in the passenger’s seat, also unconscious.
At the time, Donadio’s 5-year-old son was spotted standing alone by a gas pump. An employee took the child into a back office and called 911.
Donadio and Tocco were revived with naloxone, a drug that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose. Police said they regained consciousness and were taken to the hospital.
A used needle was found on the passenger floorboard of the car, according to a police report.
Relatives were called to the gas station to take custody of the boy.
Warrants have been issued in the case, according to court records.
