Six young college students overdosed on fentanyl-laced cocaine while partying in Florida during their spring break. One of the victims is a football player at West Point Academy. The six students were staying at a rental vacation home in Florida for their Spring Break, said officials.

Two were cadets from the U.S. Military Academy, and a West point official told the Associated Press one of the cadets hospitalized is an Army football player. The rental home was in the suburbs of Fort Lauderdale, and one person was arrested late Friday in connection with selling the drugs.

Immediately after the victims used the drug on Thursday, two went into cardiac arrest. Two people who did not take the drug attempted to administer CPR, causing them to absorb enough fentanyl to also suffer overdoses.

All six individuals were taken to the hospital, and as of Friday, one had been released, two remained in critical condition and on ventilators, and three were in stable condition said police. Some of the kids were able to regain a heartbeat after being given the drug Narcan, but four were still in respiratory arrest when they were transported to the hospital.

A neighbor describes the terrifying scene: “we saw paramedics pulling kids out of the house unconscious and just laying them on the grass” said Dana Fumosa. According to the Sun-Sentinel, six victims were found at all different overdose states, and a seventh person, a woman, was also later taken to the hospital and treated.

A name was released in connection to the arrest, and Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Stephen Gollan stated the overdoses “brings great concern that there could be other ODs over the next couple of days.”

    People just don’t understand, it only takes 2 mg of fentanyl to kill you. George Floyd swallowed more than 4, it’s what actually killed him. And it doesn’t make any difference how soon EMT’s get there… You’re dead! And if anyone tries to give you mouth to mouth, they’re dead too! Hundreds of thousands of people are dying from fentanyl they’re not even aware they’re taking, but Biden will spend trillions of our dollars defending Ukraine’s border instead of ours! Does that sound like a president that cares about America??

NYC: DEA finds 15,000 ‘rainbow’ fentanyl pills inside LEGO box

15,000 pills with the marking “30 M” imprinted on them to resemble 30 mg oxycodone hydrochloride pills, were actually “rainbow” fentanyl pills. The dangerous drug was found by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) inside LEGO boxes.

Agents stopped a vehicle being driven by 48-year-old Latesha Bush of Trenton, New Jersey, and seized the 15,000 colorful candy looking drugs on September 28; the first significant seizure of rainbow fentanyl in New York City.

“The pills look like candy,” said New York City’s special narcotics prosecutor Bridgette Brennan. “We believe it is critically important to educate the public about this new form fentanyl is taking.”

“This is deliberate. This is calculated. This is treacherous deception to market rainbow fentanyl-like candy. This is every parent’s worst nightmare, especially in the month of October as Halloween fast approaches,” DEA Special Agent in Charge Frank Tarentino III said.

“These pills are hidden in pretty much anything imaginable. Traffickers are very innovative,” he added.

So far, the DEA has seized 36 million lethal doses around the nation after it launched a 15-week enforcement and education campaign titled “One Pill Can Kill.” At least 500,000 of the doses were found in New York State alone.
