According to authorities, Grandy used fentanyl and heroin before she began to experience heavy vaginal bleeding and was admitted to Piedmont August Hospital around 9:40 p.m. on July 6, 2022.

While at the facility, the prospective mother allegedly told medical staff that she had recently done drugs, police said.

Doctors determined Grandy’s placenta had detached from her womb, and she lost her baby during an emergency C-section, The Augusta Press reported.
