According to the police officials, the 31-year-old mom was arrested on Monday after her 1-year-old baby girl ingested her drugs. The woman allegedly called 911 and told authorities that a baby had overdosed. The responding deputies found the 1-year-old child on the floor and unresponsive.
Witnesses told authorities the 1-year-old baby was unresponsive for about 30 minutes after ingesting illegal drugs, possibly fentanyl.
Deputies immediately administered Narcan to the little girl to resuscitate her. The baby began to breathe slowly after receiving it. The 1-year-old was brought to the hospital via ambulance and is reportedly in stable condition.
The 31-year-old mother from Alabama, Jeanette Lashay Bell, admitted that her baby had accessed some of her drug paraphernalia and ingested it by putting it in her mouth.
The Department of Human Resources conducted a welfare check on the other children in the house. Bell was arrested and charged with chemical endangerment of a child. She is being held on a $15,000 bond.
This incident remains under investigation. This is a developing story and it will be updated as new information become available.
