A live Facebook video showing two people unconscious on a Memphis sidewalk is going viral.
Police said the married couple snorted heroin in a Walgreens store.
According to the CBS affiliate in Memphis, the man said he took video because someone had already called 911.
“What they were doing was children things. It was a spectacle. It made me laugh. They can help themselves,” said Courtland Garner. A woman who works with people on recovering from drug addiction told the CBS station that the incident is devastating.
“People tend to think people have done this to themselves, but they haven’t,” Karen Morgan with Turning Point Recovery said. “Their brains have been changed by the use of the chemicals.”
Both people were taken to a hospital in non-critical condition. The woman was taken into custody at the hospital on outstanding warrants.
