WEST NEWTON, Penn. (WJW) -- A Pittsburgh-area mother is facing children endangerment charges after police say she overdosed just after dropping her child at a babysitter.
According to KDKA, police said the babysitter contacted them because she was concerned that Rachel Martin, 38, appeared to be under the influence of drugs.
Police said the 9-year-old, who has autism, was dropped off wearing jeans, a T-shirt, and no shoes or socks. Police said it was just 43 degrees Fahrenheit outside.
West Newton Police told KDKA-TV that Martin was wearing a "Cookie Monster" costume when she was found in her car in an alley behind the babysitter’s house, slumped over the steeling wheel.
Martin was given Narcan and taken to a local hospital. The child was turned over to her grandmother.
