In their desire to expose how drug abuse affects children, city officials in Ohio have posted a photo online of a man and his female friend passed out in their vehicle after overdosing on heroin—with a four-year-old child sitting the back seat of the car.
The City of East Liverpool posted the photo on Thursday, stating that it needed to “be a voice for the children.”
“We feel it necessary to show the other side of this horrible drug,” officials explained. “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.”
