    Naloxone, also known as narcan, is known to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.

    Police say a 5-year-old boy screamed for help after his parents took heroin in a Burlington, Vermont, parking lot and wouldn't wake up.

    Police Lt. Shawn Burke tells The Burlington Free Press charges of cruelty to a child under 10 are expected against the Franklin parents.

    Police say the child was screaming in the back seat of the car Tuesday night while two people inside were in a semi-conscious state.

    Both were taken to a hospital and given the opiate overdose reversal drug, naloxone, commonly known by the brand name Narcan.
