Paramedics, Police Race to Save Two Men After Suspected Drug Overdoses

The following was culled from Cuyahoga Falls Police reports dated Oct. 13. It does not indicate a conviction.

On Oct. 13 at 8:48 p.m., Cuyahoga Falls Police and paramedics rushed to save two men who were found unconscious in a garage off the 2600 block of Fairland Avenue. Initial reports indicated the two men could have passed out from propane inhalation as they had gone out to the garage to cook steaks using a gas grill; however, when officers arrived on scene, they found the grill to be cold and the beef uncooked.

Police suspected drug use and discovered a bowl with white residue on it and a cap to a hypodermic needle in the garage. Paramedics injected the two men with Narcan -- a drug that’s typically used to treat opiate overdoses -- to help save their lives. Once stabilized, the pair was transferred to Summa Western Reserve Hospital. According to the police report, traces of the white residue were sent to a drug lab for analysis.

Thank you, Betsy, for pointing that out! Yes to all you whiners who think YOU paid for that... you didn't! Mitt met with Cuyahoga Falls officials and his campaign took care of the tab immediately. The same cannot be said of his opponent.

Love how the conversation changes to politics...people need to stick to the topics and not worry about their political status.

I just wanted to say what an outstanding job the police officers and the City of Cuyahoga Falls did with the Romney event! As back to the subject everyone deserves the right to live drug addict or not.
