Jefferson County (AL) Sheriff's Deputies were dispatched to a residence Oct. 25 in response to an accidental overdose.

Jefferson County dispatchers received a 911 call from a woman screaming that a one-year-old child had overdosed, WBRC reports.

At the scene deputies found a small child lying on the floor, unresponsive.

“We were just worried about getting the baby back breathing,” Deputy Jordan Agee with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said.

Witnesses on the scene informed the deputies the child had ingested some illegal drugs, possibly fentanyl, and that she had been unresponsive for about 30 minutes.

Deputies began to try to resuscitate the little girl by using Narcan. After receiving the Narcan the child began to breathe slowly. The baby was transported by ambulance to Children’s hospital, where she is reported to be in stable condition.

The baby's mother, Jeanette Bell, was charged with Chemical Endangerment of a Child and held on a $15,000 bond.
