Girl calls 911 after four women overdose in home


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (KRON) — A 12-year-old girl called 911 from a Massachusetts home Sunday after she found four women in the house were unresponsive.

The women had apparently oversosed on heroin, according to police, and their children found them.

“They lucky they alive,” said one Springfield resident.

The women reportedly came home after going out, leaving pre-teens and teens at home alone playing video games upstairs in a bedroom.

Police, fire, and emergency crews arrived shortly after the call and found two of the women had pulses and two did not.

All four were given the opiate reversal drug Naloxone, or commonly called by the brand name Narcan, and quickly became alert and able to walk. All four were transported to nearby hospitals.

Detectives found drug paraphernalia and evidence that will be taken to the labs and tested. Police are following up with DCF.

No criminal charges have been issued yet, police said.
