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??

The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.

Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.

The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.

There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
