Two Dead in Red Bank After Group Overdose


Two men are confirmed dead after five overdosed in a Red Bank home Sunday morning, according to police.

Redbankgreen first reported that two men were found dead while three others were hospitalized after overdosing on opioids at 85 Bank St.

Multiple first aid squads from Red Bank and neighboring towns were called to the scene.

Two victims, aged 29 and 35, were pronounced dead at the scene while the other three were transported to Riverview Medical Center for treatment. All were given Narcan, medication which can reverse the effects of opioids in emergency situations, at the scene.

The identities of those in the home have not yet been announced, though police said one other adult and two children were present during the incident.

The investigation is ongoing.
