(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Reports have just hit our newsdesk regarding an incident around 7:00 am this morning at a southside motel located on Kingsway Ave and shares the same name as the roadway.
Our source tells us that a woman overdosed while using fentanyl and cracked cocaine. She was found unresponsive.
Narcan was not readily available but people were spotted giving the woman CPR in an attempt to revive her.
Luckily, the woman was then revived and transported to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centres emergency department where she is expected to make a full recovery under the watchful eye of the expert healthcare team there.
Narcan is a drug that temporarily reverses opiate overdose symptoms and can often buy people the time they need to survive long enough for healthcare professionals to arrive. This drug is available at no cost at almost any pharmacy. Ask your pharmacist how you can get a Narcan kit. (The government pays for it so you don’t have to upon pickup.)
