A 4-year-old boy who was found wandering alone and sobbing in Upper Darby's 69th Street Terminal Sunday led police to his father, who had overdosed on heroin in a bathroom while the kid was by his side, police said.
Adam Pugliese, 29, of Pottstown, arrived in Upper Darby by train at about 1:30 p.m. and took his son into a public bathroom with him. The dad shot up then lost consciousness, Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said.
The child wandered out of the bathroom, bawling and asking for help, Chitwood said. Police followed the boy back to the bathroom and found Pugliese passed out with a hypodermic needle and a bag of heroin.
