DETROIT -- Two girls — ages 8 and 6 — discovered four overdose victims at a Detroit house, including their mother who was among three who died.

First-responders used the overdose-reversing drug, Naloxone, to revive a 32-year-old man about 4 p.m. Sunday on the city's east side, according to The Detroit News.

The Wayne County Medical Examiner's office identified the three who died as Marcel Redmond, 31, Rashawn Nathanial, 31, and Donna White, 34, the newspaper reporter.

A cause of death was not released.

White was the mother of the two girls who found the victims. The girls were taken to a hospital for observation and Child Protective Service was investigating, police said.
