That girl was Heaven Donnelly.

Heaven was pronounced dead shortly after her arrival to hospital.

According to her mom, there was a video of her overdosing on Instagram.

“They were laughing,” said Donnelly. “I don’t understand how they could videotape my daughter overdosing but they couldn’t help her.”
