Khadija Aden, 20, of Lewiston has been arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child. Lewiston Police say her 18-month-old son ingested heroin/fentanyl and had to be revived with Narcan.
Police went to Knox St. in Lewiston, Sunday evening, June 5, for a report a toddler who was unconscious. They found the boy “lifeless,” and while attempting to perform life saving measures, one of the witnesses told officers that he may have ingested heroin/fentanyl or another narcotic.
The 18-month-old was then administered Narcan by an officer. The boy slowly began to regain consciousness and was taken to Central Maine Medical Center. He is expected to recover.
