(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Last night around 7:20 pm, a male had overdosed on opiates on a north side skating rink.
The male was located at a skating rink on Marlborough Street, near Red River Road.
Superior North EMS paramedics responded to the scene and administered the overdose reversing drug Naloxone to the male.
The male regained consciousness and was delivered to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre’s Emergency Department for further monitoring.
He is expected to survive.
If you or someone you know uses drugs, please ask your pharmacist for a free Naloxone kit. Naloxone can temporarily reverse an overdose, often long enough for paramedics to arrive and save a life.
