A mother was found passed out in a grocery store bathroom after police say she overdosed on heroin.

Jessica Widner, 28, was found Tuesday with a needle in her arm on the bathroom floor of the Kroger on Scenic Highway in Snellville.

Witnesses said they heard a baby crying and were led to the mother.

A pharmacist used one dose of Narcan and an officer would give Winder a second dose before she was revived.

See the body cam video of the efforts to save the woman on Channel 2 Action News at 5:06.
