AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A man and woman in northeast Ohio have been charged with child endangering after police say the pair passed out from drug use with a toddler in a freezing car.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group reports (http://bit.ly/16F3EHB ) police responded to a call from an Akron gas station employee Tuesday who reported a car had been sitting at a gas pump for an hour and a half.

Deputies said they found 25-year-old Christopher McGarr in the driver's seat with a needle in his arm. Police say his son's baby sitter, 28-year-old Tiffany Lovejoy, had also passed out from using heroin.

Police say McGarr's 3-year-old son was in the back seat without a car seat.

McGarr and Lovejoy are charged with felony child endangering. Court documents list no attorneys for them.
