In New Hampshire, security footage in a Dollar General recently captured a mom overdosing in front of her two-year-old daughter.
As the footage shows, the pair were shopping in the toy aisle when 36-year-old Mandy McGowan collapsed. Confused, her toddler began to cry and pull on her arm in an attempt to rouse her. This made her realize she has an addiction problem and entered into a drug rehab program.
McGowan was revived and has completed over two months of rehabilitation getting rid of her addiction. For now, her daughter remains in state custody.
It’s a heartbreaking video, but one that clearly demonstrates the danger and pain of drug addiction. Shockingly, nearly two minutes pass before anyone steps forward to comfort the little girl.
