LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Massachusetts woman is expected to be charged with child endangerment after a video shows her passed out in front of her child inside a discount store. 

Police say cell phone video shot Sunday morning at a Family Dollar in Lawrence shows the woman's 2-year-old daughter tugging at her mother's limp body. Investigators believe the woman overdosed on an oral version of heroin.

She was finally revived after receiving two doses of Narcan.

Lawrence residents say they're shocked by the video.

Police say straws and baggies with drug residue were found inside the woman's purse. The little girl is now in protective custody.
