Heroin is one of the biggest killers in America, and yet many people succumb to it time and time again. Of course, addiction is not always something people can control, but when it endangers their children, it’s a whole different story.
Recently, there was a terrible scene at the Family Dollar store in Lawrence, MA. A mother of a small child collapsed on the floor
At first, it wasn’t clear what was wrong with her. People in the store stopped to help and some called an ambulance.
They later found out that the woman had been addicted to heroin and was having an overdose when she collapsed in front of the people.
The footage was taken by another customer, who later uploaded it to social media. What is most disturbing about this is the fact that it highlights a deeper problem.
When it comes down to it, there is a real heroin problem here in the US. The video seeks to raise awareness about the epidemic.
The truth of the matter is the fact that this is not an isolated incident. Quite the opposite. This is the kind of thing that happens all too often.
The footage shows the mother’s baby tugging at her while she lies unconscious. It’s a truly harrowing moment that is rare to see on film.
Luckily, the woman in the video was shortly rushed to hospital and managed to survive the entire ordeal. But this brings into question her abilities as a mother.
The cops will be charging her with child endangerment, which could mean serious things for the future of both her and her baby.
The truth of the matter is that when she collapsed, she put her child in a very dangerous position. It was not proper parenting! This problem is a growing one and one that we all need to know about.
