After 3 Overdoses, Police Fear ‘Bad Batch’ Heroin

After 3 Heroin Overdoses,

Police Warn Of ‘Bad Batch’

Oneonta Common Council gasped tonight when Acting Police Chief Doug Brenner told them of a young woman who overdosed in the Fox Hospital bathroom while her boyfriend was being treated for his overdose. They were two of three heroin ODs on Friday night, prompting concerns that a “bad batch” could be on the streets. (Ian Austin/AllOtsego.com)

ONEONTA – With three heroin overdoses on Friday, March 17, police are concerned that heroin laced with fentanyl or other narcotics may be on the streets of Oneonta.

“The first call we got, a young man was already blue and his girlfriend was doing CPR on him,” said Acting Police Chief Doug Brenner. “Officer Luke Harvey was able to administer Narcan, and he began to wake up.”

It was the first time an officer had used Narcan to revive an overdose victim, and Brenner was pleased that their efforts were successful.

The man was transported to Fox Hospital by ambulance and his girlfriend rode with him. But police soon got another call from the hospital. “While the doctors were treating him, the girlfriend went into the bathroom and overdosed,” said Brenner.

A third overdose call came in that same night, and the EMS squad transported him to the hospital as well.
