New York Health Officials Reveal Why 33 People Collapsed, Rushed To The Hospital

Police said that 33 people were hospitalized in Brooklyn after overdosing on a bad batch of K2.

“It was like a scene out of ‘The Walking Dead.’ They were zombied out,” Brian Arthur, 38, told the New York Daily News.

Apparently, Brooklyn streets were lined with zoned out weirdos staggering and collapsing in the early morning. The hospitalizations reportedly started when someone called 911 to report people with an “altered mental status” in Bed-Stuy. After that, police, firefighters and paramedics assisted 33 half conscious people all over Bushwick. They are believed to have injected K2, a type of synthetic marijuana.

“It was a horrible scene,” Arthur told Daily News. “They were laid out twitching on the floor. Some of them were motionless. This is nothing you’d want your kids to see.”

One woman’s eyes were rolling in the back of her head, while a man was puking on the sidewalk with his pants around his ankles. Paramedics had to lure a sleepwalking man into an ambulance. Empty drug bags labeled “White Tiger” and “Dank” were found on ground in the area. Some people even became violent with emergency responders.

“If that many people are going to the hospital, it’s probably pretty indicative of something pretty toxic,” said Chris Yadron, executive director of the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation.

Neighbors said the area has become a magnet for K2 smokers with some of them even posting “No Smoking K2” signs up.

“Ambulances pick them up night and day, 24 hours,” a local bodega clerk said. “Cops see them, but they don’t do nothing.”
