BUTLER, Pa. -- A western Pennsylvania woman who was seven months pregnant is facing charges after she allegedly overdosed on heroin, forcing doctors to deliver her baby prematurely, CBS Pittsburgh reports.
According to police, Kasey Dischman, 30, was found unresponsive in her East Butler apartment in the early morning hours of June 23.
Dischman was found by her boyfriend, who said he kicked in a bathroom door, found her on the floor and then called 911. After being transported to Butler Memorial Hospital, Dischman went into cardiac arrest and needed to be revived in the emergency room.
As Dischman was transferred to Pittsburgh's UPMC Mercy Hospital unconscious and on a respirator, police with a search warrant found a needle hidden in the bathroom of her apartment.
