Chloe McMahon, 26, was discovered collapsed in Wigan by Jake Worswick on October 24.
The mum had called him in the early hours of that morning expressing concern after having a bad dream.

A post mortem found Chloe died from hanging. She had cocaine her system.
The inquest heard how Chloe had a “traumatic” childhood and had taken overdoses as a teenager.
Her mum Lisa McMahon said she believed this was a "cry for help" rather than serious attempts to end her own life.
Chloe was twice referred to mental health services and there were no further incidents of self harm.

But the inquest was told she continued to have nightmares and suffered from anxiety, which were likely to have been symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Chloe was prescribed anti-depressants by her GP and it was suggested she should go to a therapist.
The mum spoke to a mental health practitioner on October 13 but failed to attend an appointment five days later.
Lisa told the court she last spoke to her daughter on FaceTime on October 23 and she seemed fine.
Chloe returned home from a neighbour's house at around 11pm.
Assistant coroner Stephen Teasdale said he could not be sure she intended to end her own life due to the suspected PTSD and the impact of cocaine.
Recording a narrative verdict, he said she died by hanging but her intentions were unclear.
