Marion police Maj. Jay McDonald tells The Marion Star that the child apparently was able to find and consume Percocet pills in both cases.

Marion police were called to a hospital Sunday for a report on the toddler, who had also overdosed several days earlier. McDonald says the overdose antidote naloxone was used to save the girl after the second overdose.

Her 33-year-old father and 32-year-old mother have been jailed. The local children’s services agency also is investigating what happened.
