Mother accused of overdosing in front of daughter appears in court

LAWRENCE, MASS. (WHDH) - A New Hampshire woman was in court on Friday, accused of overdosing in front of her daughter.

Mandy McGowan is facing child endangerment charges after overdosing at a Family Dollar store in Lawrence.

This all happened back in September.

Police said the 2-year-old watched her mother overdose and collapse in an aisle.

The 2-year-old frantically tried to wake her mother.

Paramedics arrived shortly after.

McGowan will be back in court in March.
