Dennis Quaid's Twins Given Accidental Overdose

Dennis Quaid's Twins Given Accidental Overdose

Dennis Quaid and wife Kimberly Buffington‘s newborn twins, Thomas Boone and Zoe Grace, are fighting for their lives.

According to TMZ, the kids allegedly were given an accidental drug overdose at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

The babies, born Nov. 8 to a surrogate, were accidentally given close to 1,000 times the necessary dosage of Heparin (an anti-coagulant) and began to “bleed out” Sunday night.

The infants are currently in stable condition at the neonatal intensive care unit and are being given Protamine, which reverses the effects of Heparin.

Quaid‘s rep issued the following statement: “Dennis and Kimberly appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers, and hope they can maintain their privacy during this difficult time.”

Our prayers and thoughts go out to the family.
