COMSTOCK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) - Rescue personnel revived three people "found unresponsive and near death" after suffering from apparent heroin overdoses.
Kalamazoo County sheriff's deputies and medical personnel from the Comstock Township Fire Department and Pride Care Ambulance responded around 5 p.m. April 28 to two separate addresses in Comstock Township.
A 27-year-old man, under the influence of heroin, police said, drove his infant child and girlfriend to an address in the 6200 block of Wright Street. The girlfriend had also used heroin and lost consciousness at the residence, police said.
Rescue personnel revived her, and the man was arrested for operating with the presence of drugs and child endangerment.
The man's sister then collapsed inside the house and was found unresponsive without a pulse. Police said she also had injected heroin. She was also revived and transported to a hospital.
Then Kalamazoo County Dispatch received a call from the 600 block of Azuba Avenue in reference to another overdose. A 24-year-old woman was found unconscious and without a pulse in a house.
Rescue personnel were able to revive her.
A search warrant of this house uncovered some drug related items.
