Four found unresponsive revived following overdose


SYLVAN BEACH — Four people were hospitalized after rescue personnel said they were found unresponsive at a mobile home park on Marina Drive very early Tuesday morning.

Fire officials said they were dispatched to the scene at about 2:30 a.m. and four adults were found unresponsive, suspected of having suffered drug overdoses.

Officials said the four individuals were administered multiple doses of the drug naloxone, which reverses opioid overdoses, and all four were revived.

State police said a 46-year-old woman, a 26-year-old man and a 34-year-old man were found outside the residence on a porch. A 53-year-old man was found inside the residence, sitting on a couch in the living room.

Their identities were not released. Troopers did not identity the type of drug believed to have been used, though naloxone treats opioid overdoses, such as heroin or fentanyl.

All four were taken to local hospitals in Rome and Oneida, authorities said, and are expected to survive.

Troopers said five children were located inside the home, ranging in age from 2 to 10.

Troopers said the children were unharmed and were turned over to a family member.

The incident remains under investigation, the authorities added.
