The Metro Detroit Post said in a Twitter thread that the trooper called emergency medical services and rubbed the child’s sternum, which began breathing slowly.
The EMS arrived and the soldier handed the girl over to them.
“A prompt investigation revealed that the child had ingested heroin,” state police said. EMS administered Narcan and transported the toddler to a nearby hospital, where he was listed in critical condition.
Police found 15 doses of powdered heroin, contained in red and black capsules, and said the mother had 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 hospital.
The mother was also taken to hospital “pending clearance from Macomb County Jail”. The children were kept in hospital for treatment and pending placement by child protective services.
State police did not identify the mother or specify what charges she may face.
