***I’m just going to warn you right now that these photos are very graphic and disturbing.***
Police in East Liverpool, Ohio posted 2 photos on Facebook that are very graphic of a couple overdosing on what they believe to be heroin in the front seat of a car with a 4-year-old child in the back seat.
Ohio police said in the post below, “We feel it necessary to show the other side of this horrible drug. We feel we need to be a voice for the children caught up in this horrible mess. This child can’t speak for himself but we are hopeful his story can convince another user to think twice about injecting this poison while having a child in their custody.”
In their police report they said they saw the man driving was “bobbing his head back and forth” and both the driver and passenger eventually became unconscious during the stop. They saw the woman turning blue and immediately called an ambulance. The 4-year-old boy in the back seat is reported to be the woman’s son.
Police also said in the Facebook post, “We are well aware that some may be offended by these images and for that we are truly sorry, but it is time that the non drug using public sees what we are now dealing with on a daily basis. The poison known as heroin has taken a strong grip on many communities not just ours, the difference is we are willing to fight this problem until it’s gone and if that means we offend a few people along the way we are prepared to deal with that.”
