Spring Break is here for many schools around the country, and two Army football players along with several others came to Florida for Spring Break to enjoy a great time only to end up hospitalized for an overdose.
According to multiple reports, one of the Army’s football program were involved in a drug related incident at a Florida vacation home. Six people total would end up hospitalized from fentanyl-laced cocaine. The other football player was reportedly in the house but did not end up going to the hospital.
Two of the six people still remain in critical condition and on ventilators.
Two individuals suffered cardiac arrest shortly after using the drug, according to the report. Two others received enough fentanyl to cause an overdose while performing mouth-to-mouth in an attempt to revive the other students.
Police arrested a man linked to the overdoses. Axel Giovany Casseus, was arrested on cocaine trafficking charges, and was believed to have supplied the drugs used.
Please keep the Cadets on ventilators in your prayers. The Army is aware of the situation, and they are looking into the matter.
