Two young Pennsylvania boys were able to save a couple who overdosed on heroin by yelling for help out a window.
Upper Darby police say the 4-year-old and 1-year-old boys yelled out the window, crying that their parents were locked in the bathroom and wouldn’t come out, The Associated Press reported.
Neighbor Kendra Outen called 911, and she and others cared for the children as police and paramedics arrived to revive the couple from heroin overdoses on Wednesday. Neighbors say the children clutched the leg of one of the responding officers.
The couple, 32-year-old Sean Dolhancryk and 31-year-old Sandra Dicianno, were in a county jail Friday on drug possession and child endangerment charges.
They don’t have attorneys listed in court records.
“This addiction is more powerful than love of your children,” Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said.
