Six West Point football players on spring break in Florida overdosed on fentanyl-laced cocaine, leaving two in critical condition, authorities said Friday. Paramedics responded to a short-term Airbnb rental home Thursday in Wilton Manors and found the six cadets in cardiac arrest from a drug overdose.

 

Two of the victims remained in critical condition Friday, Wilton Manors police confirmed to The Post. At least one of the victims was treated and released, according to NBC Miami.

 

The group — all men in their early 20s — were in town to celebrate spring break from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in New York, officials said.

 

“The U.S. Military Academy is aware of the situation involving West Point cadets, which occurred Thursday night in Wilton Manors, FL. The incident is currently under investigation and no other details are available at this time,” a West Point spokesperson said in a statement.

 

Fort Lauderdale Fire Chief Stephen Gollan told WPLG that “narcan was deployed as quickly as possible.”
