'Trust is a huge thing:' Few call 911 for an overdose despite immunity law
Nobody called 911 when Michael Akey overdosed on heroin. He remembers waking up at the sink in his Brattleboro hotel room, pouring sweat, his head ringing, he said. He learned later that he stopped breathing, and that his then-girlfriend had to administer rescue breaths. He found out later that she called friends, who brought over the opioid overdose antidote naloxone.
