An Ohio police department have shared this horrific photo to raise awareness of heroin-ravaged America.
The photo shows a 4-year-old boy sitting in the backseat of a car, wondering what is going on, while his mother and her boyfriend sit slumped-over and unconscious in the front.
Police say an officer watched the vehicle weave erratically and stop, then approached and noticed signs the driver was impaired. Paramedics revived the pair, who face child-endangering and other charges.
The boy has reportedly been placed in the custody of children’s services.
In a Facebook message, police in East Liverpool, Ohio, say they are sorry if people are offended, but they want the public to see what happens and want to be a voice for the child who witnessed the scene.
