STOCKTON - The parents of a toddler who was hospitalized after eating an Ecstasy pill on Saturday were arrested, the Police Department reported.
Their 1-year-old son was first taken to St. Joseph's Medical Center but was later flown to an area children's hospital in serious condition.
Police said that on Friday night, the couple argued over the pill in a home in the 600 block of West Worth Street. During the argument, the pill fell to the ground, where it remained until the following morning, when their son found it and ate it.
Feleia Estrada, 24, and Angelo Medina, 22, were arrested on suspicion of child abuse.
