LAWRENCE, MA (KTRK) — Disturbing cell phone video from Massachusetts shows a woman collapsing after overdosing on drugs while shopping at a Family Dollar store with her 2-year-old daughter.
The child is seen screaming and tugging on her mom.
Paramedics were able to revive the woman. She’s now facing child endangerment charges.
Police say while they wish the person taking the video had helped the frantic child, the clip is a key piece of evidence in a child endangerment charge, combined with drug paraphernalia found in the woman’s bag — straws and baggies with drug residue.
They believe she had overdosed on an oral version of heroin or an opiate-based narcotic like Fentanyl.
She finally came to after two doses of Narcan.
The little girl is in protective custody.
