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.
