A Facebook Live broadcast supposedly caught a Boston, Massachusetts, man and woman passed out from a drug overdose last week.
Streaming the incident, Junior JayRoc DiSola and another man tapped on the car window when they saw the unresponsive couple—a needle idly sitting in the woman’s lap. The woman is seen waking up after a minute and shaking the man, identified as Dan, to no avail.
“I have Narcan in the trunk,” the unidentified female is heard saying. She then runs to the passenger side of the car and administers CPR.
At this point, a crowd had surrounded the white vehicle. The woman asks someone from the crowd to call an ambulance as she attempts to revive the man.

The woman explains to a responding Boston Police officer that Dan doesn’t do drugs often.
“I’m not judging you,” the officer replies. “I just want him to make it.”
Dan can ultimately be seen coming to and vomiting after the second dose.
Boston Police spokesman Officer Stephen McNulty told CNN that Boston Emergency Medical Services treated the overdose victim with the assistance of Boston Police.
The seven-minute video has gained traction, being viewed more than 13 million times in a week. Despite the video’s popularity, McNulty told CNN that there are no plans to arrest the pair as an incident report wasn’t filed and no narcotics were recovered from the scene.
“While the video is troubling and disturbing, there is no criminal investigation into the incident at this time,” he said.
The Boston Public Health Commission declined to provide additional details about the June 21 incident, citing privacy concerns.
