Michigan State Trooper Revives Toddler Who Ate Heroin

A Michigan state trooper revived a toddler investigators say had ingested heroin she found in capsules in her mother’s car on Saturday.

State police said that the 31-year-old mother flagged a trooper down at about 10:30 a.m. and put her unresponsive 18-month-old daughter in his arms.

The Metro Detroit Post said in a Twitter thread that the trooper called for emergency medical services and did a sternum rub on the child, who began slowly breathing.

EMS arrived and the trooper handed the girl over to them.

“A quick investigation revealed the child ingested some heroin,” state police said. EMS administered Narcan and rushed the toddler to a nearby hospital, where she was listed in critical condition.

Police found 15 doses of powdered heroin, contained in red and black capsules, and said the mother tried to hide the drugs. In addition to the 18-month-old, a 3-year-old was also in the mother’s vehicle and was taken to the hospital.

The mother was also taken to the hospital “pending clearance to the Macomb County Jail.” The children were kept at the hospital for treatment and pending placement by child protective services.

State police did not identify the mother or say what charges she might face.
