ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - A Virginia woman is charged with child neglect after police say officers found her and two other adults passed out in a car while the woman’s infant daughter cried unrestrained in a child safety seat.

New media outlets report that officers who were called to a parking lot in Roanoke on Sunday found 31-year-old Charles Breedlove and 39-year-old Stephanie Bushan unconscious in the front seat of a car, and the crying infant next to her unconscious and unbreathing mother, 29-year-old April Maxwell, in the back seat.

Police say rescue personnel revived Maxwell with naloxone, and she was charged with felony child neglect. The infant was turned over to Child Protective Services.

Breedlove and Bushan have been charged with public intoxication. Police say they seized heroin paraphernalia from the car.
