LAWRENCE, MA (CNN) -

A video of a mother passed out from a drug overdose as her child tries to revive her horrified those who saw it over the weekend.

Massachusetts police officers said they were sharing the video, because they want the world to know the dangers of drug use.

The video showed a toddler screaming and crying beside her mother, who passed out in the aisle of a Massachusetts store.

First responders gave the woman two doses of Narcan to revive her. When they searched the woman's purse, officers found drug paraphernalia. 

Police officers said the unidentified woman now faces a reckless endangerment of a child charge. 

The child seen in the video is in custody of the State Department of Children and Family Services.
