More than 70 people overdose in a single day in New Haven

Embargo Hartford New Haven Conn.**New Haven Fire Chief John Alston said a series of overdoses occurred in New Haven Green

No one has died, but police said six people came close. "The identity of the man arrested will not be released until such time he's been positively identified by any probable victim so as not to taint the investigation". The patients were taken to area hospitals for overdose-related respiratory illnesses, Officer David Hartman said.

The first cases were reported near Yale University on Tuesday night, officials say. Officials say some patients returned to the green after being discharged from the hospital only to overdose again. Officials weren't certain whether Thursday's overdoses involved the same batch of "K2" synthetic marijuana.

Officials confirm that a third arrest has been made after over 100 overdoses on K2, otherwise known as synthetic marijuana, happened in New Haven. It said major causes of the increase in deaths are the growing number of people using opioids and the increased potency of the drugs themselves.

Channel 3 was told that the drug is cheap and could be as low as $3.

Police Chief Anthony Campbell said Friday that 53-year-old John Parker was charged with drug crimes after being caught with 32 bags of K2.

"DMHAS will provide for the city recovery coaches, training and dissemination of Narcan, as well as fund a street psychiatrist", Harp said. "So it became a domino effect". "At that point, we'd go help that patient, and while helping that patient, another person went down". The news and stories that matter, delivered weekday mornings.

Police believe the victims had smoked a synthetic cannabinoid, known as "K2", mixed with the powerful opioid fentanyl.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said the state Department of Public Health and the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services assisted in New Haven in the midst of the overdoses. "It's sad when you know statistically this is something that is happening to our entire nation, but when you see it first hand right where you live and where you work, it's a awful thing".

Victims displayed a multitude of symptoms, including "vomiting, hallucinating, high blood pressure, shallow breathing, semi-conscious and unconscious states", according to Rick Fontana, director of the city's Office of Emergency Operations.

A similar mass overdose occurred on New Haven Green just one month ago, on July 4, when more than a dozen people fell sick from synthetic marijuana. But he anxious that others may have taken the drug home with them. Alston said many contend with mental health issues, making the drug abuse a medical issue in addition to a legal one.
