Mom Dies Of OD In Daughter's Hospital Room, Father Arrested

WXIX reports that medical staff entered the child's room to find 32-year-old Mary Ann Landers unconscious with a needle in her arm around 11:30 a.m. Her husband was discovered unresponsive in the bathroom with a heroin syringe in his arm, according to court documents.

Wesley Landers was charged with possession of drugs, carrying a concealed weapon, having weapons while under disability and possessing drug abuse instruments.

A man appeared in court on Friday and is being held on $500,000 bond after he and his wife allegedly overdosed in their daughter' hospital room Thursday.

Tracey Bice of Pell City, who called herself Landers' "soul sister", told AL.com that her friend, a mother of two, was not a drug user.

Mary Ann was found to be deceased at the time, and the cause of death was ruled pending.

The daughter is reportedly recovering from her surgery, although it is unclear who now has custody of the infant. "It just goes to show you that how desperate they were", Hamilton County Coroner, Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco, said.

After the man was found unconscious, he was transported to University of Cincinnati Medical Center and later revived.

The family is from Alabama. The Landers updated their progress online, sharing excitement about the doctors in Cincinnati and a last optimistic selfie before Wednesday's successful surgery, a double-stage laryngotracheal reconstruction. Their seven-month-old child was being treated at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. EMS workers say that kind of drug use is making it hard to get people breathing again and can make it more difficult to save them. "All I can tell you is that our office is inundated, and if I had some answers, we would be implementing them now".
