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??

Venezuelan officials warn that the leader of the Tren de Aragua gang escaped from prison last year and could be hiding in the United States. The Venezuelan gang is exploiting the migratory surge at the United States border, and the FBI warns it is likely making alliances with the violent Salvadoran gang Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13).

According to veteran FBI agent John Morales, a special agent in charge of the El Paso division in Texas, amidst the growing violence in the United States, MS-13 and other dangerous gangs could form a temporary alliance.

“Although these gangs normally do not mix, it will always be a concern as the [Tren de Aragua] band grows stronger and establishes a foothold,” Morales explained. “At this moment, we are working with our local law enforcement partners and sharing intelligence to stop the growth of the Tren de Aragua.”

Members of these two criminal groups have been detected in U.S. cities such as Baltimore, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, and Chicago, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Immigration officials say that criminals are illegally remaining in the U.S. after they are released from immigration detention centers, committing violent crimes, including murders.

Between October 2022 and September 2023, Border Patrol agents detained 41 members of the Tren de Aragua along the southern border, and now FBI agents are asking Venezuelan migrants to report gang members in exchange for witness protection and temporary visas.
