Residents in the building tell us that a 30-year-old female had stopped breathing and then started turning blue due to an opiate overdose.

Nalxone was administered and the woman was brought back from the brink of death by hard working paramedics.

โ€Purple Downโ€ is a mix of heroin/fentanyl and sometimes carfentanil too. It is very dangerous and is killing people every day in Canada. A tenant in the building told TRCCTB.COM that โ€œpurple downโ€ was what the woman was using.

Please donโ€™t use drugs alone or without a Naloxone kit handy. Are you wondering where you can get a free Naloxone kit? Ask your pharmacist, and they will train you as well.

Naloxone is an overdose reversing drug that can temporarily reverse an opiate overdose.
