Nantucket Police Investigate Possible Student Overdoses

Nantucket PD/Investigating Possible Overdoses


Possible drug overdoses by three Nantucket High School students last Friday night are under investigation by the Nantucket Police Department.

The Inquirer and Mirror reports that police responded to the Nantucket Cottage Hospital parking lot after a radio call from the fire department that there were several people who had been at a party where some of the individuals had potentially overdosed.

A private citizen was performing CPR on one of the students before rescuers took the person into the hospital.

The names of the students and the location of the party have not been released, but one of the young people was airlifted to a Boston hospital. Two others were treated and released from the island hospital.

Police are aware of the location of the party and are investigating.  They expect there will be an arrest or arrests as a result of the incident.
