13-year-old dies from suspected fentanyl overdose in Connecticut, police say

A 13-year-old who was hospitalized Thursday following apparent exposure to fentanyl at a Connecticut middle school died Saturday, authorities said.

Hartford police indicated "proximity" to and "contact with" synthetic opioid fentanyl by the unidentified teenager and two others triggered overdose reactions, although experts have long expressed doubt about such a scenario.

Hartford police said the student's death was the result of an overdose, and that it that was under investigation.

"The 13-year-old male juvenile succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased," the department said in a statement.

The victim became unconscious Thursday morning at the Sport and Medical Sciences Academy, a public prep and magnet school, authorities said. CPR was administered and he was hospitalized in what police described as "guarded condition."

And the school did not have Narcan available? WHY NOT?
