A woman who was arrested in Pennsylvania admitted to poisoning her children with Visine

According to the Associated Press, police in Gettysburg, Pa. arrested 23-year-old Samantha Unger after it was suspected that she had been poisoning her sons. She told them she added Visine to her 3-year-old son's drinks, which her year-old son accidentally consumed. The Associated Press adds that her arrest affidavit's show that she confessed to putting over a bottle of eye drops in her son's juice over time.

Both of her son's eventually became ill. Her 3-year-old had to be airlifted to the hospital because his pulse was frighteningly low, and doctors suspected the children were being poisoned after finding traces of Tetrahydrozoline in his urine. 

Unger was charged with endangering the welfare of children and aggravated assault of children, but avoided an attempted murder charge due to the absence of intent.
