Another heroin overdose has been reported in Murfreesboro.
According to the husband of the woman who overdosed, the two were sitting in the parking lot of Kroger on South Church Street when they decided to shoot up. The 27 year old female quickly became unresponsive so the husband drove across the street to the fire hall in front of Indian Hills Subdivision.
Once at the fire hall, paramedics gave the woman Narcan. She then became responsive. Narcan (naloxone) is a prescription medicine that blocks the effects of opioids and reverses an overdose. Opioids include heroin and painkillers like morphine.
The husband told police his wife used only 1/10th of a gram of heroin prior to passing out. The woman was transported to St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital for further treatment.
To make matters worse, the husband and wife had their 18-month old child in the vehicle with them when they used heroin. The Department of Children Services was notified, but no arrests were made.
