(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Yet another opiate overdose has rocked the city, this time it occurred at a well known trap house.
This trap house is used to move mainly crack, cocaine, fentanyl and heroin. Today a woman used too much fentanyl and became unresponsive.
A person in the home administered the opiate overdose reversing drug Narcan, but it did not seem to be effective and 911 was called. As paramedics were on their way the overdosee was revived and responsive. The traditional trip to the hospital was adamantly declined and the ambulance left empty handed.
Narcan is free, ask your local pharmacist about how you can obtain a free kit along with on the spot reining on how to use it.
