This mannequin challenge is a devastating reminder of the heroin epidemic


780 million opioid painkillers were shipped into West Virginia in the past 2 years alone

WATCH |  It's been all over social media, but you probably haven't seen a mannequin challenge like this one before.  

The video was created by Grant County Sheriff's Office and Paramedics.

The heroin epidemic has been ravaging sections of middle America, including the Appalachia states of Kentucky and West Virginia. Ohio is another state that has seen alarming deaths and overdoses due to heroin and opioid prescription medicines. 

Rarely do we see a mannequin challenge that comments on the social and political zeitgeist.

The creators of the video wanted to remind everyone of the havoc heroin has on communities and families. They were also inspired to create it for those who were lost, including their friend, Jerry Davis. 

A few months back this chilling video went viral. It shows a father telling his son that his mother passed away from a heroin overdose.
