WATCH: Toddler Saved From Accidental Drug Overdose


Quick action by police in Texarkana helped save the life of a toddler who had accidentally ingested one of his mother’s pain pills earlier this year. Watch the video below as two officers describe the response during a February snowstorm and explain how events like Arkansas Drug Take Back Day can prevent accidents like this from occurring.

Drug Take Back Day is set for Saturday, April 24, 2021. Drop-off sites will be available across the state, providing education around opioid addiction and proper disposal of medication. Learn more and find a locator map at ARTakeback.org.
