A Spring Hill woman is facing an additional charge of child abuse after a second child in her home tested positive for cocaine.

Kimberly Losurdo, 45, was arrested on Thursday after a 9-year-old child was admitted to the hospital.  Blood tests revealed there was cocaine in the child's system, deputies said.

The child told investigators that a rock-like substance was found in the bathroom, and that the child had eaten it on Tuesday, deputies said.  After that, the child became sick, vomiting until the child was taken to the hospital while having a seizure.

Two other children, ages 11 and 16, were also taken from the home and placed in the custody of the Department of Children and Families. 

On Friday, investigators said the 11-year-old had also tested positive for cocaine.  The child was taken to a local hospital for testing and evaluation. Deputies said the child did not exhibit the same seizure-like symptoms as the 9-year-old.

Deputies said the child told investigators they had recently seen Losurdo "smoking something in short quick sessions." The child also said that a "pill/candy-looking substance" was found on a dresser and that the child ate it, deputies said.

Investigators said Losurdo had admitted to smoking crack cocaine inside the home.  Deputies said they found a crack pipe inside the home.

Losurdo is now facing two charges of child abuse.
