St. John Ambulance took the girl to Starship Hospital in critical condition after being called to Great South Rd, Takanini at around 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Alison Cronin, Oranga Tamariki Regional Manager in South Auckland, told 1 NEWS today that the girl is “safe and with the family”.
Police say early signs suggest she was taking the class B drug GBL, also known as fantasy or liquid ecstasy.
She was released from the hospital yesterday, police confirmed today.
The authorities refused to reveal the girl’s age.
Cronin said police contacted the agency immediately after the incident.
“We’re working with a larger family to make sure the child and siblings are safe,” she says.
“We will continue to work with the local police to investigate what happened.”
The police are continuing their investigation into the incident.
