Daughter films parents overdosing live on Facebook
Warning: This video contains footage that some viewers may find disturbing.
The following video is extremely upsetting and is not something you'll want to view if children are in the room. Two teenagers — a girl and her friend — took this dramatic and disturbing footage when they discovered her parents in the midst of what appears to be a heroin overdose. They broadcast the recording live on Facebook. It must have been horrible to have seen this heartbreaking scenario unfold in real time, but one can only imagine the compounded horror of having to face this situation on a regular basis.
In the United States, an estimated 13% of children under 18 lives with a parent or other adult who uses illegal drugs. One hopes that this video will result in the couple and their daughter getting some urgently needed help so they can begin the process of recovery. For others, it can only serve as a warning to those who haven't yet descended to this level of addiction. If you or someone you know is struggling with any kind of chemical dependancy, information and help is available here.
