A 25-year-old mother who was shown being brought back to life from a heroin overdose on the streets of New Jersey has gone viral – prompting the mother to defend her drug use on Facebook. Kelly-Mae Hemphill, who has an eight-year-old daughter, can be seen lying unconscious on a sidewalk in Paulsboro, New Jersey.
The woman in the video had been traveling home from Camden with her brother when she passed out in the car, according to DiSimone. Her brother dragged her out of the car and began attempting CPR while a passing motorist went to the Paulsboro police station to report the incident.
Officers from Paulsboro administered Narcan and she was transported to a local hospital for treatment and released. On Tuesday, police conducted a wellness check on her and reported that she was doing fine.
She should use this as a chance to teach. She is blessed to be alive. Drugs do terrible things to people don’t judge her. Encourage her to reach out to kids and other adults and teach them. Turn this negative into a positive.
