Parents OD In Their Child's Hospital Room

A couple of parents who were spending the night with their baby girl in an Ohio hospital decided they couldn't wait to get a fix. Hospital staff could not believe what they found in the morning.

Mary Ann and Wesley Landers, a couple from Alabama who were at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center with their 7-month-old daughter, overdosed in the baby's room. The baby was there awaiting trachea surgery.

The 31-year-old mother was found dead on the floor next to her daughter's crib. Authorities suspect she died of a heroin overdose.

The 32-year-old father was found unconscious, but alive. He passed out, the needle still sticking out of his arm. Police suspect heroin was his drug-of-choice as well. He was promptly arrested.

Both mother and father were also carrying concealed weapons and drug paraphernalia.

The baby, thankfully, is fine. Hopefully whoever takes custody of her will be better parents to her.
