New Haven park overdoses possibly caused by fentanyl

25 people overdose at Connecticut park officials say

"There's so much garbage that's being sold and you can call it whatever you want to call it", Dr. Sten Vermund, dean of Yale School of Public Health, told the New Haven Register.

A new report estimated a record 72,000 Americans died a year ago from drug overdoses, a rise of around 10 percent, the Centres for Disease Control said on Wednesday.

The man arrested on Wednesday is suspected of being connected to some of the drugs that caused the overdoses, NBC News Connecticut reported. "We have no deaths reported". Responding personnel found individuals suffering from "a multitude of signs and symptoms ranging from vomiting, hallucinating, high blood pressure, shallow breathing, semi-conscious and unconscious states", he said in an email.

Dr Kathryn Hawk, an Emergency Department physician at Yale New Haven Hospital, said the drug was laced with fentanyl, but police have yet to confirm this.

Three arrests have been made in the case, Hartman said, but officials can not say for certain if all three arrested or just one of them are directly responsible for the overdoses. In some cases, patients improved after receiving high doses of the drug naloxone that reverses opioid overdoses, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Fontana also says that the DEA sample that was sent off for analysis came back negative for Fentanyl.

Officials said Emeth Soloman, 43, of New Haven, had pled guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute, and distribution of, cocaine. "It's a nationwide problem that people are self-medicating for several different reasons, and every agency - police, fire, medical hospitals - all are strained at this time".

The city's fire department assistant chief Mark Vendetto revealed some patients had been treated multiple times for overdoses.

"We're getting another call of a person", Alston said.

A similar, but smaller overdose incident, played out on the Green on July 4, when more than a dozen people became sick from synthetic marijuana, according to The Associated Press.

"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.

"It is upsetting", Campbell, the police chief, told a WVIT reporter.

"One of our fears is that this isn't over", Hartman said.
