SIX DEAD IN SUNDAY HEROIN OVERDOSES AROUND KENSINGTON
Six people died on Sunday from overdoses Philadelphia Police say are likely part of a bad batch of heroin. Five men and one woman died, according to NBC10, ages 24 to 42. The deaths occurred mostly in the area of Kensington Avenue between Somerset and Westmoreland, but one man was found on the 3000-block of N. Broad St. near Indiana. Meanwhile, a recent survey by National Clinician Scholars and Prevention Point Philadelphia found just 40 percent of pharmacies in zip codes with high heroin possession carry naloxone, which can reverse the effect of an overdose.
