Sad – Footage Shows Massachusetts Toddler Trying to Wake Up Heroin Overdosed Mother in Store


An unresponsive woman was caught on camera on the ground suffering from an overdose in a store.

In the scary footage, the woman’s 2-year-old daughter tried to pull her mother’s arm and wailed.

The clip was taken at a Family Dollar store in Lawrence, Massachusetts, in the toy aisle, Fox 25 reported.

Lawrence Police Chief James Fitzpatrick told Fox 25: ‘It’s very disturbing to see someone obviously in the matter of addiction where it overtakes someone where they’re not able to take care of their child, leaves their child vulnerable.’

According to the TV station, the mother may have overdosed on either oral heroin or a narcotic like fentanyl.

She needed two Narcan doses so she could be revived and her bag was revealed to contain straws and baggies with drug residue, the report said.

She’s going to be charged with child endangerment and her daughter’s in custody with the Department of Children and Families, according to Fox 25.

The woman was identified as 36-year-old Mandy McGowen of Salem, New Hampshire, by the Eagle Tribune.

A police report, the newspaper reported, says McGowen said she didn’t overdose and had fallen asleep.
