A New Philadelphia woman had to be revived with NARCAN in the back seat of a vehicle parked on the side of a road with a toddler on board.

New Philadelphia Woman Revived with NARCAN, Charged with Child Endangerment

When State Police approached the scene, three people say they saw a vehicle parked on the shoulder of the road. The passenger door was open and no driver present.

In the back seat however, police found an unresponsive 26-year-old woman from New Philadelphia and a 3-year-old child.

Local EMS arrived and delivered several doses of NARCAN (generic name is naloxone) to the woman. That finally revived her on the scene. She got taken to St. Luke’s Miners Hospital.

Family members collected the child who got left in the back seat of the vehicle on the side of the road and took custody of them. The child, police report, escaped any physical injuries during the incident.

Police say they’ll file child endangerment charges against the New Philadelphia woman in District Court.
