In a crazy and sad story, one good thing can be said - a 6-year-old girl is safe.

The events took place last Thursday at a Mount Morris Twp. home (Genesee County). ABC12 reports that a 6-year-old girl was left alone for almost an entire day after waking up and finding her dad dead and stepmom unconscious in their bed. Police said in an interview that

The girl threw water on her father and step-mother to rouse them, but neither regained consciousness.


Eventually, the little girl took pictures of her passed out parents and sent them to a grandparent in Tennessee through Facebook messenger. That's when they called 911.

Mt. Morris Township Police say the 40-year-old man and his 36-year-old wife had overdosed, and at one point, the family Pitbull gnawed on the man's face. The woman was taken to the hospital where she is currently in stable condition. Cops are crediting the little girl for her resourcefulness and, in turn, saving her stepmother's life.

The child was back in her biological mother's custody by Friday.
