EMS Revive Potential Heroin Overdose Victim


EMS personnel in LaPorte successfully revived a Michigan City woman believed to have overdosed on heroin. LaPorte Police were called to an apartment in the 300 block of Park Street at 7:42 p.m. Sunday. The male tenant told the officers the 29-year-old Michigan City woman appeared to be very intoxicated when she showed up at his apartment. She eventually became unresponsive, and he called 911. Heroin is possibly to blame for last Tuesday’s deaths of a 20-year-old LaPorte man and a 17-year-old girl from Dyer. Toxicology results are pending.
