The details are limited at this point, but medical resources responded to the Covelo Firehouse this evening where a two-year-old child was reportedly in the midst of an overdose.

Against medical advice, the parents reportedly chose to self-transport the child to a local medical provider.

Please remember that this story is unfolding. Information is being reported as we gather it. However, some of the information coming from witnesses and initial official reports could be wrong. We will do our best to get the facts but, in the case that something is inaccurate, we will update with correct information as soon as we can.


  1. How does a two year old get a hold of drugs? Oh yeah they find them laying around their addicted parents pig stye! Hope the baby makes it through this. The 2 yr old’s life is probably going to take a change of course through the CPS and foster care services.

    • 80% of foster kids wind up in the justice system at some point. I think this kid has a very hard road ahead.

      • Yes, a hard road ahead unless maybe grandparents or other relatives can take the child.

I like to think of myself as a journalist for the everyman. Journalism has become a craft practiced largely by the urban elite. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs to be told.
