HOLIDAY, Fla. (WPEC) - Authorities arrested a woman in central Florida after a one-year-old girl in her care overdosed on fentanyl.

Heather Revell, 35, is facing charges of child neglect, heroin possession, and possession of a controlled substance.

Revell told investigators with the Pasco County Sheriff's Office she injected heroin mixed with fentanyl on Saturday night. On Sunday morning the girl became lethargic and unresponsive. Pasco County Fire and Rescue crews determined the girl suffered from an overdose and gave her Narcan to reverse the effects. After the girl became responsive, crews took her to the hospital. The mother told investigators she didn't clean up after herself and the girl must've ingested the heroin, the sheriff's office said.

The girl is being monitored at the hospital, the sheriff's office said.
