Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies rushed to Mt. Olive Way for a woman who overdosed on prescription medications. Deputies arrested the woman’s husband earlier in the day.

A child called 911 and deputies were led into a bedroom where the woman was found unresponsive. She would occasionally wake up and pass out again while speaking with officers. EMS arrived to take the woman to Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center.

The woman’s mother was called from South Carolina to stay with the children. While on the scene, the deputy noticed several rooms in the residence were without power. DFACS was contacted and planned to meet the grandmother in the morning.
