10-year-old calls 911 after dad, grandma overdose

NEW BRIGHTON — Police have charged a man and his mother with endangering a 10-year-old boy who called 911 when they passed out while allegedly from using heroin in the bathroom of the home they shared.

Online court records don’t list attorneys for 34-year-old Chad Kiser and 52-year-old Ginger Ray Foust of New Brighton. The boy is Kiser’s son and Foust’s grandson.

The Beaver County Times reports police found both adults unresponsive when they arrived Friday evening.

Both were charged with possessing drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of the boy, who told police that his grandmother went into the bathroom to help his father after he passed out. The boy told police both were trying to help one another with their drug addictions.

The boy has been placed in county welfare custody.
