26 people overdose in 24-hour span in New Haven

16 Août, 2018, 18:38 | Auteur: Yves Courtet

People are saying 46 people overdosed Wednesday from a suspected bad batch of "K2" synthetic marijuana at or near a city park in CT.

On Tuesday night, emergency crews responded to three overdoses in New Haven Green park.

New Haven Green is a large park and recreation area in the city's downtown. "Emergency responders rushed to one victim as officials were giving a news conference nearby late Wednesday morning".

The exact cause of the overdoses has not been confirmed, but officials suspect that synthetic cannabinoids, also called K2 or spice, are the culprit.

Synthetic opiates like fentanyl, which is 30-50 times more potent than heroin, are extremely unsafe.

'Do not come down to the Green and purchase this K2, ' he said.

A new report estimated a record 72,000 Americans died past year from drug overdoses, a rise of around 10 percent, the Centres for Disease Control said on Wednesday. The identities of those people weren't immediately released.

"It's a nationwide problem", Alston said of drug overdoses.

"Two individuals had life-threatening symptoms, and the others had non-life-threatening symptoms", he said. Three people who overdosed died after taking cocaine that had been laced with fentanyl, over a dozen others were hospitalized.

Dozens of people suffering from apparent overdoses were transported to local hospitals from the New Haven Green, according to Rick Fontana, director of the city's Office of Emergency Operations.

Officials said the patients were "all different ages" and that anti-overdose drugs given to some victims did not work.

The DEA is helping to investigate how at least 76 people overdosed in New Haven, Connecticut in the past 24 hours.

The substance behind these overdoses is highly unsafe and must be avoided.

"The substance behind these overdoses is highly risky and must be avoided", Malloy said, adding that state public health officials had delivered 50 doses of Naloxone to New Haven to replenish the supply expended by first responders over the course of the 24-hour crisis. I have spoken with Mayor Harp and assured her that the state remains committed and ready to assist their response efforts wherever needed.

First responders went through a lot of the life-saving anti-overdose drug Narcan.
