      Woman overdoses on Heroin in DestinyUSA parking lot

      A heroin overdose at a DestinyUSA parking lot on Saturday. The 20 year old woman was revived by Rural Metro

      A 20 year old woman was unconscious in a DestinyUSA parking lot on Saturday afternoon, and Syracuse Police say it was a bad reaction to heroin. They were called to the incident, at 4:45pm on Saturday.

      Screams for help, from a woman who was with the unconscious and not breathing woman, brought help from a passer-by who started doing CPR. Rural Metro crews revived her with Narcan, which emergency crews now carry to couter the effects of the heroin.

      Syracuse Police say the woman later admitted she bought and used heroin. The case remains under investigation.
