Mom passed on the side of the highway with an overdose of heroin. Her 12-year-old called the police



  Deputies said a woman had disappeared from a heroin overdose with three children in the car.
The woman's daughter called 911 from a family-owned minivan car that was parked on the side of I-4 after Tiffany Smith's mother moved and lost consciousness, according to a news release on her website to the Sheriff of Volusia County.

"Hmm, my mother won't wake up and we're on I-4 in the car," says the daughter in a panicked voice on a 911 call made by the agency.

When deputies arrived, they found Smith unconscious with his 12-year-old daughter, a 7-year-old boy, a 1-year-old boy and two dogs in a minivan.

Paramedics administered a dose of Narcan to revive her, police said. They can then be heard on body camera footage, which says deputies were on a five-hour trip to their sister in South Carolina with the children when she began to experience back pain.

"I honestly took heroin because it hurts my back," Smith, 28, told employees.

"This is something you should take for your back?"

Smith was taken to AdventHealth Fish Memorial Hospital in stable condition. She was charged with neglect, but was not immediately detained at the Volusia County Jail pending treatment at the hospital, police said.

The children were not injured and placed under the care of their grandmother, police said in a statement. The dogs were referred to animal control officers.
