A police department in Ohio uploaded a rare picture to its Facebook page last week. In the picture, a couple is seen passed out in their car after they apparently overdosed on heroin while their 4-year-old son sits in the backseat. “We feel it necessary to show the other side of this horrible drug,” the police officers explained. “We feel we need to be a voice for the children caught up in this horrible mess.”

Kevin Thompson was the police officer who dealt with the incident. Thompson noticed a car that was driving erratically between lanes. When he pulled the driver over, he saw that his head was moving back and forth. Thompson said that it was almost impossible to understand what the driver was saying. According to the police officer, the driver was trying to drive to the hospital with his girlfriend who was passed out in the front seat. However, he almost immediately lost consciousness. At that moment, Thompson noticed the young boy in the backseat.

The police officer called for an ambulance and the medical team that arrived gave the two drug users life-saving treatment. The young boy was handed over to the local social services.

“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,” the Facebook post reads.
