  1. What kind of a news story is this. It’s missing the main point. Was the overdose fatal or were they revived by Hatzolah and or the medics?

  2. I supposed posted on one of these Sullivan County Facebook pages, major major major kudos to hatzola for their tireless work here. It seemed even the haters were thanking them for working on three ayno yehudim for well over 3 hours as local emergency personnel were not yet there.

    It’s worth looking for these posts and having them posted to YWN.
