About the sizable Seattle Fire response at Roxhill Park

Overdose responses are sadly not rare. Those with multiple patients are. That’s what brought the sizable Seattle Fire response to Roxhill Park this past half-hour. According to SFD radio communication, a woman and man, both 33 years old, were found “unconscious and unresponsive” after “suspected opiate overdoses.” They were able to revive her, and thought that – after many efforts including 10+ rounds of CPR – they had revived him, but he’s just been declared dead. The woman, meantime, will be taken to a hospital.

    How awful. To the opioid epidemic, you are a bane on all of us.

    This is heartbreaking.  May the person taken to the hospital get all the help they need and for the person who passed away, may they Rest In Peace.

    To die, to sleep,
    To sleep, perchance to Dream; aye, there’s the rub,
    For in that sleep of death, what dreams may come…

    I called 911 this afternoon concerning a man lying on the sidewalk near the bus stop on 26th Ave SW at Westwood Village.  It was heart breaking to see scores of people walking/ driving by and no one stopping to help. Do you have information on this incident? Sounds like it could be related?

    Overdose responses are sadly not rare.

    4,000 overdoses from January to September this year (~15 a day), compared to 1,700 for all of 2021. Maybe public health should be dispensing regulated opiates at this point.

    So sorry to read this news.  Rest in peace young man, and peace to his loved ones.  Hoping for healing and comfort for the young woman who survived, and may she get the help she needs.
