Mayor Eric Adams and law enforcement officials announced on Wednesday that an at-home child care facility in Manhattan was exposed for having fentanyl and ghost guns. 
This comes nearly two weeks after a fatal drug bust at a day care in the Bronx, where a 1-year-old child died due to fentanyl exposure. Four other children were hospitalized due to fentanyl exposure.  
Adams told concerned parents that the administration will “remain vigilant” and will be working with health officials, law enforcement and prosecutors to come up with a plan for safety inspections moving forward.
