Felicia Farruggia demands heroin meth speedball injection during child birth

Posted March 10, 2017

Police in New Hampshire say a woman in labor demanded a friend inject her with heroin and methamphetamine before firefighters arrived and she gave birth in an ambulance.

Both women were charged with reckless conduct today.

Police in Concord arrested Felicia Farruggia, 29, of Concord, this week, about six months after her son was born. "She didn't really care what".

According to investigators, Farruggia asked 37-year-old Rhianna Frenette to give her heroin and methamphetamines.

"This case is just, honestly, absolutely appalling in my mind", Ford said, according to the Associated Press. His urine tested positive for methamphetamine and amphetamine. The state has custody of him.

Both women were held on bail Wednesday, with the bostonglobe reporting that Farruggia was ordered held on $15,000 cash bail, and Frenette ordered held on $25,000.

Farruggia, WHIO reported, screamed, "I can't do this" when experiencing contractions.

Frenette told the police that, upon entering the bathroom, she felt like she has stepped into a nightmare. Frenette said that a quick fix was the only way to calm down Farruggia long enough for her to call for help.

Police told WBZ-TV the investigation took so long because they had to wait for toxicology reports and needed witnesses to cooperate. To boring out the pain, the woman asked Frenette to inject her with a cocktail of narcotics. Frenette said she took a used needle provided by someone else and "shot out probably more than half" of the substance inside it before injecting the rest into Farruggia. Frenette also said she herself was likely high on methamphetamine.

Police stated in documents that the baby was able to breathe on his own, but was breathing very rapidly, which may have been caused by the mother's drug use.
