A daughter has live streamed her mother and father in the midst of an alleged heroin binge in the living room of their home.

The video showed the daughter and a man, whose relationship to the couple is not clear, attempting to wake the mom and dad up as they were slumped over in front of the TV.

The mother, who is sporting a tie-dye t-shirt, is observed at the beginning of the footage looking completely out of it and incapable of looking at the camera as her daughter tries to wake her up.

Her father is seen curled up on the floor, slowly rocking backward and forwards but is totally not aware of what is going on around him.

The man recording the video is heard saying: “They’re really f***** up, ain’t they?” just before the young girl takes her phone and shines a light on her father’s face.

“Man, you cannot be like this around your kids,” the mysterious man continued.

The daughter shouts out at her mom with the flashlight right in her face, but she is still unresponsive.

At one point, the girl kicks her father in a desperate plea to wake him up, stating “he can’t even feel it, that’s how high he is.”

It is not clear when the video was recorded, but it is the most recent incident in a string of shocking footage exemplifying the severity of the heroin epidemic in the United States.

Back in June, a report issued by the United Nations advised of a heroin epidemic taking over the country with cheap supply pushing the number of users to the highest its been in 20 years.

Authorities have revealed that in recent months, they are struggling to cope with an unusual spike in the number of overdoses after heroin laced with elephant tranquilizer that is 10,000 times more potent than morphine has found its way onto the streets.

Video footage surfaced last week of spectators laughing at a married couple as they became unconscious in the middle of the road after overdosing following a heroin binge.

The video depicted a couple slumped over on the floor after sniffing the drug in the restroom of a local Walgreens before they passed out on the street in broad daylight in Memphis, Tennessee.

EMS personnel eventually came to the scene and managed to revive 59-year-old Carla Hiers and her partner, who are both long-time drug users.

The most horrific picture of the summer revealed a couple slumped over and unconscious in their vehicle as a four-year-old boy is seen staring out of the window from the back seat.

The photo was posted on social media by the Ohio police department in an effort to raise awareness of the heroin epidemic.

Rhonda Pasek, 50, who became known as “heroin grandma,” was sentenced to 180 days behind bars after she pleaded no contest to child endangerment. Her boyfriend, James Acord, was sentenced to 360 days in prison for child endangerment and operating a vehicle under the influence.

In an emotional conversation with the Daily Mail, Pasek maintained that she did not take heroin and that she had ingested a single bottle of Redd’s Blueberry Ale and took what she thought was a painkiller because she was feeling so terrible.

She stated: “I made the worst mistake of my life. I’ll be paying for this until the day I die. I know how wrong I was and there is no taking it back. I take full responsibility.”

When asked about the heroin allegations, Pasek rolled up her sleeves of the green prison uniform she was wearing and displayed her arms, which had no sign of any track marks.

Her public defender also told reporters that Pasek had tested negative for heroin use and added that no syringes were discovered in the vehicle.
