TROY — A trio of alleged heroin users went down within four minutes of one another late Tuesday night.

Troy police and fire department medics were dispatched to the 1300 block of Imperial Court around 11 p.m. on the first report of a man down from a probable overdose and not breathing.

The first incident was reported at 1310 Imperial Court. The 31 year-old white male was unresponsive in the bathroom of the apartment. The reporting party said the male left the apartment for half an hour and came back home. The subject then was found on the floor. Medics administered six doses of Narcan. The male admitted to snorting one cap of heroin and was transported to the Upper Valley Medical Center.

The second overdose call was reported at 11:04 p.m. A 31 year-old male subject was found unresponsive in the hallway of 1313 Imperial Court. He was administered six doses of Narcan.

The male in the stairwell notified medics another overdose inside the apartment. The 27 year-old male subject was administered a sternum rub by officers. He then nodded out and was given four doses of Narcan.

One of the male subjects admitted to using three caps of heroin. The other subject said he thought he was smoking marijuana out of a pipe, but did not admit to using heroin.

Dispatchers from the Miami County 911 Center immediately began giving CPR instructions to bystanders.

Troy medics requested a mutual aid medic dispatched from Elizabeth Township.

According to Capt. Joe Long, no names have been released due to charges pending against the subjects.
