Police first pulled over the vehicle after it was swerving on the road. When
the officers realized the driver and passenger were barely conscious they
administered the life-saving drug Narcan, which reverses the effects of
heroin overdoses.

On Facebook, authorities with the city of East Liverpool explained exactly
why they shared the graphic images on social media last week.

“We are well aware that some may be offended by these images and for that we
are truly sorry, but it is time that the non-drug using public sees what we
are now dealing with on a daily basis,” the statement

“The poison known as heroin has taken a strong grip on many communities not
just ours, the difference is we are willing to fight this problem until it's
gone and if that means we offend a few people along the way we are prepared
to deal with that.”
