CORRY, Pa. (AP) — Police in Pennsylvania have charged a woman with endangering her 3-year-old son by huffing a solvent while giving him a bath.

Corry police tell the Erie Times-News (http://bit.ly/1CRN9T2 ) the boy has been placed with a relative since his mother was arrested Sunday.

That's when police say they got a tip that 22-year-old Nicole Gauck, of Corry, was intoxicated while caring for her son.

When police arrived they found Gauck incapacitated from huffing the fumes from a can of spray duster, an aerosol product that shoots a strong jet of air to loosen dust from computers and other devices.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Gauck who faces a preliminary hearing Oct. 24 on charges of child endangerment and inhaling toxic substances. She doesn't have a listed phone.
