These before and after photos show the real effects of heroin use

A video of two people who were involved in a car accident and apparently overdosed on drugs in Detroit, just one U.S. city where the heroin abuse is an epidemic, has emerged online and gone viral.

The video shows a male and female passenger who are unconscious in their car after a wreck while passers-by attempt to revive them. The bystanders slapped the male in the face and poured water on the female until they showed signs of life. The video reveals that the woman still had a needle in her leg.

The video was uploaded on March 28, but the exact date of the incident is unknown.

The video ends with a police car arriving at the scene, but according to Fox 2, Detroit police say they have no record of an investigation like this and because the video doesn't have an exact date, narrowing it down will be hard.

The video posted to Facebook is titled "White Couple OVERDOSED In The Hood!!" and has over 3 million views.

Warning: this video contains graphic language.
