East Liverpool Police Reports

Responding to 1023 Riverview Street for a possible overdose, officers were met by Donald Crumbley Sr., who said the woman was downstairs. There, they found Wendy L. Ludington, 47, of that address, sitting at the kitchen table, with shallow breath, sweating and pale face, and Donald Crumbley Jr. beside her. He was asking for help, saying Ludington needed Narcan, according to reports. He was pinching her nostrils and giving her mouth-to-mouth resuscitation but was told by officers to stop since she was breathing. They reported that Crumbley was “so out of it he continued his terrible CPR efforts” until Lifeteam ambulance arrived. Crumbley advised officers Ludington had snorted heroin but denied using any himself. She was transported by Lifeteam to the hospital and was charged with public intoxication.
