Women 19, and 25 Found Unresponsive from Suspected Drug Overdoses
SPRING HILL – Earlier this morning RNRF received information that two young women were found unconscious and not breathing at separate locations around Spring Hill.
The first incident occurred at 4553 Collins Road, where witnesses say a 25-year-old woman was dropped off in the front yard and was unresponsive. Sources say a syringe and a bottle containing an unknown liquid was located on the ground next to the woman. She was transported to Oak Hill Hospital where her condition remains unknown.
The second incident occurred at a residence on Mission Way, where a 19-year-old female was found unresponsive and transported to a local hospital for treatment. There are reports that the victim overdosed on Methadone, but officials have not confirmed that information.
Lt. Burzumato with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office says “Overdoses in general are treated as a person in need of medical assistance. In some instances the patient may succumb to the overdose, in which case the SO would work the case as an unattended death. In yesterday’s instances, both patients, were alive, however in medical distress, which required immediate medical attention. Both patients were transported to local hospitals for treatment. If the patients expire at the hospital the SO will work closely with the hospital and the ME to determine the exact cause of death which may eventually lead to criminal charges if an offense is discovered.”
Although both cases have similar details and were reported nearly simultaneously, it is unknown if they are related in any way.
