A video that shows a father telling his 8-year-old son that his mother died of a drug overdose has drawn more than 100,000 comments and been shared more than 740,000 times since the father posted it to Facebook. The father claims the video is not staged and that he shared it as a public service -- to show people the horror of having this conversation with a child in hopes it might scare some people straight.
Brenden Bickerstaff-Clark, the father, wrote (all caps his): "THIS FOR ANY AND EVERY ADDICT WITH CHILDREN. TODAY I HAD TO TELL MY 8 YEAR OLD SON THAT HIS MOMMY DIED FROM A DRUG OVERDOSE LAST NIGHT." He added: "PLEASE GET HELP SO OUR CHILDREN DONT HAVE TO SUFFER." The video has now been viewed more than 34 million times since being posted on October 10.
