An woman is in jail after her 2-year-old son had to be treated for an overdose of illegal drugs that she allegedly left within his reach.

State police say earlier this month 24-year-old Shalynn Schatz of Emporium left the drugs within the reach of two 2-year-old boys. The one who ingested an unknown amount of the drug was taken to Penn Highlands Elk for treatment.

Schatz is charged with endangering the welfare of children and recklessly endangering another person.

She's in McKean County Jail (Cameron County no longer has a jail) in lieu of $20,000 bail.

Sculpture and Wall Pieces by Ani Hoover @ JCC's Cattaraugus County Campus | Olean | New York | United States

​For most of Ani Hoover’s artistic career she consciously tried to keep a studio practice that was separate from her life outside of the studio. You couldn’t tell a lot about her interests and passions (outside of art making) by looking at her work. But in recent years a few of her personal interests and passions are starting to make appearances in her studio. For the exhibit Habit, Hoover focus her art making on two of her longtime passions, recycling and craft making. The works in this exhibit feature the craft techniques of weaving, crochet or sewing and many of them also feature materials gleaned from the waste stream.
