As fentanyl is being put in everything, even bootleg THC vapes, as an Anesthesiologist I can tell you fentanyl can not be dosed as a street drug. It can cause the diaphragm to freeze up with just a very small amount. We call it," chest wall rigidity". In the operating room we can give a muscle relaxer to relax the diaphragm but then we have to use ventilators and ambu bags to help keep the person breathing.
A post on Twitter says this: "Supposedly people held a fentanyl party here in Pittsburgh last night where multiple people supposedly OD'd on fentanyl/heroin and then someone was supposed to stab them with a Narcan pen so they could experience death for a brief period, but the 'reviver" decided to shoot up to and now a sh-- ton of people are dead. What in the living he--?"
Orange wrist bands were given out at an event featuring "DJ Pauly D", there is video of people there wearing orange wrist bands. Police have said they have found two places giving out orange wrist bands yesterday, but they won't name them.
New information: all the victims are men. 1 was 33-years-old. According to public safety the other victims were around the same age. 2 were found dead in the apartment. The victim in the elevator died. The victims in the hospital are still in serious-critical condition.--Twitter
That's about as much as I know right now.
Something happened in Pittsburg. Orange Wrist bands. Trendy area. Hospital. That's all we know.
A thing happened... so the police TOTALLY want you to give 'em a call if you can add details to this.
Something happened to five people wearing orange wristbands last night in Pittsburgh. The end.
I am guessing its a batch of fentanyl. Its being added to heroin, coke, meth and pressed into every type of bootleg pill imaginable because it only costs about 3 cents a dose. No dealers on the street have figured out how to dose this so as not to be lethal so its a game of Russian Roulette out there when buying any street drug. It reminds me of the Angel Dust/PCP days except that drug just caused you to lose your mind for a couple of day. With fentanyl, you lose your life.
My nephew John wrote this article. He turned 4 last week. He's very sensitive to criticism. Please don't make fun of him.
Very informative story:
“In a trendy area of a city in the United States, some people put on wristbands and died. There was beverages at an apartment, and a TV. One resident owned a car which she apparently drove at times. More details to follow.”
I’m guessing fentanyl in coke and/or heroin was the culprit
Something happened to some people. However in the spirit of political correctness we will not be telling you any details or what actually happened.
Gee sounds like a safe and sane party. Can only speculate given lack of any information here but can't imagine good judgement was oft exercised...
