QUAKER CITY — A Barker Road resident has her mother to thank for her life after she stopped breathing during an apparent overdose incident at the home early Friday morning.

The 24-year-old victim was transported to Barnesville Hospital following the incident — a fact made possible by approximately 15 minutes of CPR by the mother after she found her daughter unresponsive on the floor in their bathroom when she returned home from work.

The mother told a Guernsey County sheriff’s deputy that her daughter was blue and cold to the touch when found just before 12:30 a.m.

Emergency responders from the Barnesville, Quaker City and Old Washington fire departments were dispatched to the eastern Guernsey County home along with deputies when a caller reported a female was unresponsive with CPR in progress.

The mother told deputies she saw lights on in her daughter’s room when she arrived home from work, but she didn’t answer when she called out to her. A check of the bathroom door revealed it was locked, but no response came from inside when the mother again called out to her daughter.

The mother kicked open the bathroom door and found her daughter lying against the door. The younger woman had stopped breathing and was cold to the touch.

After administering CPR for an estimated 15 minutes, the daughter started breathing and woke up.

First responders were advised the female was awake and she was reportedly trying to leave the residence before authorities arrived.

A Barnesville EMS crew and a Guernsey County sheriff’s deputy were the first to arrive at the home. Medical personnel from the Quaker City and Old Washington departments were then canceled while Barnesville EMS transported her to the hospital.

A deputy said the mother told him the needle from an alleged injection of Fentanyl was still in her daughter’s arm when she entered the bathroom. The daughter reportedly advised a deputy she "shot up" a substance she identified as "fetty," a slang term for Fentanyl.

Tin foil that is believed to have contained the Fentanyl was also recovered from the residence.

The victim was served with an immunity form from the Guernsey County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office and the case was forwarded to the detective bureau at the sheriff’s office for additional investigation.
