Dennis Quaid's Newborn Twins Accidentally Overdosed

Dennis Quaid's newborn fraternal twins, Thomas Boone and Zoe Grace, have been given an accidental overdose at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Instead of the usual 10 units of anti-coagulant Heparin, the babies were each given an alarming 10,000 units of the drug. The overdose caused the babies to bleed out. They are now stable in the intensive care unit where they are being given a drug to reverse the effects.

According to TMZ, the Quaid twins weren't the only ones who were given an overdose of Heparin. As many as 13 patients may have been accidentally overdosed.
