    26 heroin overdoses over 4 hours in 1 West Virginia city
    HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Officials in a West Virginia city are warning people about an especially dangerous batch of heroin after authorities responded to 26 overdoses in within a four-hour span.

    The rash of overdoses came Monday in the city of Huntington, which sits in Cabell County along the Ohio River in the western part of the state. Gordon Merry, the county’s EMS director, said at a news conference Tuesday that the heroin the users had taken was laced with a strong substance, but authorities aren’t sure what it is.

    Many of the overdoses were in an area surrounding one apartment complex in the city, he said, leading officials to believe the cases were connected. He said the amount of calls that were received overwhelmed responders.

    “Just to give you an idea, when the first few came in, three ambulances were already out dealing with overdoses,” Merry said.

    For a half-hour span, there were no ambulances available in the county to send, Cabell County EMS assistant supervisor David McClure added.

    Merry said eight of the victims were revived Monday using the opioid-overdose-reversing drug naloxone and others by a manual resuscitator called a bag valve mask to stimulate breathing. One victim was given three doses of naloxone.

    Cabell County responded to 39 overdose calls in all of August 2015.

    There have been more than 440 overdoses in Huntington from all types of drugs this year through mid-July.

    “As a public health problem, this is an epidemic of monumental proportions,” Dr. Michael Kilkenny, director of the Cabell-Huntington Health Department, said. “We really must stop the demand side of the equation. We must attack the issue of addiction.”

    CBS Huntington affiliate WOWK reports officials are worried the strong batch of heroin will make it to the capital city, Charleston.

    Cody Southern, a recovering addict and graduate of Recovery Point in Huntington, told WOWK he fears this current rash of overdoses is not the end of the problem.

    “I’ve bought, I’ve sold, I know what goes in as a consumer and I know what goes into it as a seller. This is not isolated,” Southern said. “There will be more overdoses by the weekend. I would guarantee it.”

    Why revive them?
    If you're shooting heroin, you don't want to live anymore

    I didn't catch the sister part in the story.


    Never had a sister.

    Edit: Ah, West Virginia.

    I suspect you just insulted a few members here who enjoyed it mightily.

    You can order fentanyl analogs and other synthetic opiates easily from China these days. Surprised this doesn't happen more often. Here in detroit they call Huntington "munington". Cause money

    I haven't heard a single candidate say anything about the heroin epidemic. But all you heard in the 80 and early 90's was crack this and crack that.

    I asked my junkie Uncle what heroin was like.

    He said it was like a 24-hour orgasm.

    If he had to choose, he would pick heroin over sex.

    Makes me curious but I'm not dumb enough to try it.
