LAWRENCE, Mass. — A toddler was in tears as she tried to wake up her apparent overdosed mother who laid on the toy aisle floor of a Family Dollar.
The child can be heard crying in a video that police released on Wednesday. It was shot by a bystander and she tugs on her mother's arm and head. The mother can be seen lifeless and unresponsive on the floor, as the child says "mama wake up" in between her tears.
Paramedics arrived and administered two doses of Narcan.
This is the latest incident of caregivers getting caught overdosed or intoxicated in front of children.
Two weeks ago, a grandmother with custody of a 4-year-old boy was seen overdosed in a car with the boy in the backseat. Her boyfriend - who was driving - was also overdosed in the front seat.
On Tuesday, police released a report that said two New Hampshire mothers were caught drunk in the parking lot of a Salem mall with their months-old babies.
