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”.
