Heroin Horror: Facebook Video Captures Unconscious Couple on Sidewalk

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A live Facebook video showing two people unconscious on a Memphis sidewalk is going viral.

According to police, the two people said they "snorted some heroin" in a nearby Walgreens bathroom.

Someone driving by saw them on the sidewalk at South Pauline Street and Eastmoreland Avenue around 3:30 p.m. Monday and called 911, according to WREG.

Memphis Fire crews revived the husband and wife, who were both then taken to the hospital in noncritical condition.

Police found the woman, Carla Hiers, had a warrant out for her arrest, so they took her into custody.

Courtland Garner posted a Facebook Live video of the incident, showing the two sprawled on the sidewalk and onlookers commenting on them.

"What they were doing was children things. It was a spectacle. It made me laugh. They can help themselves," said Garner. "I know for a fact all the kids are on social media, and when kids see that video, you know what they are going to say? I don't want to look stupid like that I don't want to do those drugs."


  • Should be ashamed of yourselves

    Why don’t we just bring the stockade back for these people already? Is this really our best solution in the 21st century? Adjust these archaic laws and shame tactics that clearly aren’t working.

  • Dylan

    Simple Solution- DON’T DO DRUGS YOU MORONS!! People make choices, They need to live (or die) with the results. Idiots

  • Thin The Herd

    No one call the authorities. Let this “epidemic” run its course. If public shaming doesn’t work for these idiots, let this be a cautionary tale to others.
