A 6-year-old girl in Colorado managed to get help for her overdose mother, who was taking fentanyl.
Wheat Ridge Police released a statement Sunday calling for the toddler’s rescue after her cries for help were heard by a passing postman.
The child’s mother lay unconscious in the driver’s seat.
“We are incredibly grateful to the involved member of the community that the little girl (that’s right, a child was involved) came to the rescue on the second call. Her mother pulled the vehicle they were in to the side of the road, used Fentanyl and then passed out,” police said in a statement.
“A postman heard the 6-year-old calling for help and called us. This could have been so much worse, but we are relieved to report that the little girl is safe with a relative after the driver has been arrested,” the report added.
This was the WRPD’s second fentanyl-related arrest in the same report.
An officer examined a vehicle in a motel parking lot with two unconscious passengers.
After determining that the woman was high on fentanyl, she was taken into custody. The vehicle turned out to be stolen.
Fentanyl has quickly become one of the deadliest opioid epidemics in the United States.
Border Patrol agents made an arrest early Monday morning in California after apprehending a driver who tried to smuggle about 250 pounds of fentanyl.
A 2015 Black GMC was stopped on a highway near Campo, California around 3:00 AM and a Border Patrol K-9 sniffed and alerted officers to the vehicle.
Officers searched the vehicle and discovered multiple bundles hidden in the car’s spare tire and gas tank. The bundles tested positive for fentanyl.
This amount of fentanyl has an estimated street value of more than $3,600,000, according to the CBP.
