Opioid crisis: Helping children who see their parents overdose

A new video uploaded Friday shows another case of a child standing helplessly by an adult unconscious from a drug overdose.

The scene, filmed by an onlooker in a supermarket, is the most recent public example of children who witness their parents' overdose. Earlier this month, the Ohio police department shared a graphic photo of a 4-year-old in a car with two overdosed adults sprawled out in the front seats, hoping to make a very public statement about the dangers of the continuing opioid overdose epidemic throughout the United States and its unintended consequences on children.
