Multiple suspected synthetic cannabis overdoses at park by Yale University

No deaths were reported, but officials said two people suffered life-threatening symptoms.

"I'm extremely grateful for the timely and effective work of first responders who helped revive, transport, and save these victims", she said.

By late Wednesday afternoon, Mayor Toni Harp had increased police presence on the green, and directed that the New Haven Fire Department and AMR ambulance maintain an around-the clock incident-command center there.

"The man was arrested within the last hour by members of the NHPD Intelligence Unit", police said in a release.

"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. By late Wednesday night there had been no deaths reported.

Officials said Emeth Soloman, 43, of New Haven, had pled guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute, and distribution of, cocaine. The additives boost the high, but can create a risky, sometimes deadly cocktail. One engine company, for example, responded to eight separate overdoses.

Emergency crews showed up and found some people passed out and unresponsive, while others were complaining of nausea or were vomiting.

"He says one of the victims still had some of the drug, which has been sent off to a lab for testing".

Officer David Hartman was quoted by the newspaper as saying the patients were being treated for overdose-related respiratory illnesses.

As New Haven, Connecticut, Fire Chief John Alston Jr. spoke to reporters about a spate of drug overdoses on Wednesday, he heard shouting coming from behind him. "Some of the reactions in the emergency room would suggest that there was an opioid involved as well", Emergency Medical Services Medical Director Dr.

The alert also reminds people of the symptoms of overdoses: The person won't wake up; has blue lips or fingernails; has clammy, cool skin; shallow, slow breathing or is suffering from seizures, the EMS office said.

The number of overdose victims linked to a suspected bad batch of synthetic marijuana has risen to 76 in New Haven, Connecticut, as officials try to determine exactly what sickened people.
