Landis mother charged in toddler overdose

A Landis mother was charged Wednesday in the overdose of her 20-month-old child, police said.

A family friend called 911 from 416 S. Beaver St. regarding the child having difficulty breathing.

The friend went to the home because she couldn’t contact the resident, Shannon Clement, 26, by phone.

Clement also didn’t answer the door so the friend went inside and found Clement sleeping in a bed with the child. 

The friend told investigators that when she pulled she covers back on the bed, several pills fell onto the floor.
During the 911 call, the caller described the child as having difficulty breathing, unconscious, limp, with purple lips and “white stuff all over her face.”
The unconscious child can be heard gasping for breath during the call, police said.
The child was taken to the hospital and treated for an overdose.
The child is expected to make a full recovery, police said.

Landis Police investigators searched the home and found an assortment of drugs and drug paraphernalia.
Investigators charged Clement with one count of felony child abuse by neglect, one count of felony maintaining a dwelling for controlled substances, two counts of possession of a schedule II controlled substance, one count of possession of a schedule IV controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Clement was booked into the Rowan County jail under a $90,000 secured bond.

"As well as being high in calories, food like takeaways, cake, cheese, chips, and crisps are high in fat and sugars which are bad for our pets’ waistlines and teeth," a volunteer vet with PDSA, Vicki Larkham-Jones, said in a statement

Larkham-Jones said that although almost half of pet owners said they believe obesity is the biggest threat to animal welfare, they still feed their own pets poorly.

"Some owners even admitted to giving chocolate and even alcohol, both of which are poisonous to pets and can be fatal," she said.

Larkham-Jones said the right food, diet and exercise can prevent pet obesity and turn things around.
