Dad Overdoses On Heroin To Scare His Son Straight
This sounds super extreme, however, desperate times call for desperate measures.
According to NYPost, a Brooklyn father who had been trying for years to get his son off of heroin had finally had enough and decided to teach his progeny a very harsh lesson.
After finding his son’s drugs stash, Sergey Gnatovskiy decided to find a nice juicy vein and overdose on the opiate.
“I told him if you’re not going to stop, I will do the same as you do,” Sergey Gnatovskiy, 45, told The Post. “I [tried] to send him to rehab. He promised me he was going to go, and I found it again.”
Wednesday afternoon, 23 year old Maykl found his father passed out in the floor of their home. He immediately began to perform CPR and used a nasal spray to revive him.
“My son was screaming at me, ‘Pop, Pop, are you crazy, you almost died,’” he said.
Says a heartbroken Sergey:
“If I lose you — I don’t know. Look what you made me do yesterday? I’ll give you my home, my car, my heart. I don’t want to lose you,” he yelled at his boy as a single tear ran down his cheek.
Maykl has been doing H since he was 15, he says he’s ready to go to rehab now.
