An Idaho woman recently purchased alcohol for a teenage boy living in her house who was having a birthday, according to investigators. One of the guests at the party was a 14 year old girl who ended up drinking multiple shots of the alcohol and lost consciousness.
Some of the other teens at the party notified the woman of the young girl’s condition. According to reports, instead of calling 911 to report the incident, the woman instead hooked the girl up to an IV drip, administering approximately half a liter of fluid into her veins. She allegedly did not only fail to contact paramedics, but also failed to notify the girl’s parents of the incident as well.
The woman also attempted to wake the girl up by putting her into the shower. Fortunately the girl eventually regained consciousness and walked home later the next morning.
The woman was arrested and charged with two counts of felony injury to a child. Her bail was set at $300,000. If convicted she faces up to 10 years in state prison.
