Concerned Customers Likely Save Everett Infant’s Life

Police Blotter


A 52-year-old Everett man was laying outside of this car with a 35-year-old Everett woman and a three-week-old infant in the back seat.

Ladies getting their nails done likely saved the life of a three-week-old girl this afternoon.

Shortly after 2:00 PM customers in a nail salon in the 1200 block of SE Everett Mall Way noticed a man on the ground outside of an older Chevy in their parking lot. The man was sprawled on the ground with an open driver’s door.

After he’d been there a moment the people who had been parked next to him stepped over him and drove away apparently without checking on him.

One of the ladies from the nail salon went out and asked him if he was okay. She didn’t get a response. She looked into the car and saw a woman sprawled across the back seat of the car with an infant. The woman was also non-responsive. The folks at the nail salon then called 9-1-1. Everett firefighters and medics arrived and had to give emergency treatment to both the man and woman. The three-week-old infant was found to be okay and carried to the Everett Police South Precinct where Child Protective Services was called.

Everett Police spokesman Aaron Snell tells that the 52-year-old male and 35-year-old female from Everett were both rushed to Providence Regional Medical Center. Their condition is unknown but based on circumstances both are now under investigation for criminal mistreatment of a child. Child Protective Services is taking custody of the three-week-old girl. It is not known at this time how either of the two adults are related to the infant.

Given the heat outside and the infant being in the car with an unconscious person, it appears to be a good thing that the people in the nail salon took action to check on the person laying outside the car and did not just ignore the situation as others reportedly did.

Because of medical privacy laws was not able to find out if the medical treatment related to the two adults was for an overdose. We will update if more information is made available or when a charging decision is made regarding mistreatment of a child.
