An infant was rescued from a hot car in Ohio as its parents were seen lying on the ground, allegedly overdosing from drugs.

The man who saved the baby, Eric Asher, recounted to reporters: “We were driving down the road and I looked over to my right and I saw the male and female laying on the ground. We (later) saw that they were purple.” Asher added that the infant was “covered in sweat”.

Asher and his fiancée immediately acted and removed the baby from the car from the vehicle. “We…gave the baby some water. That was our priority,” Asher told reporters, as he added that he was glad he was in the “right place at the right time.”
