HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — A Harrisburg couple were arrested after police discovered a packet of heroin and fentanyl mix inside an unresponsive 7-month-old’s mouth near 2nd and Market Streets on Thursday, September 23. Police say the child’s life was saved after officers administered two doses of an opioid overdose reversal drug while transporting the baby to UPMC Harrisburg.
Tyler Darnell Norman, a 26-year-old Harrisburg man, was arrested nearly two weeks after the incident, according to a press release from the United States Marshals Service (USMS) along with the child’s mother, Khelsea Frick, who was at the scene and confirmed that the packet contained a mixture of drugs.
