LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WKBT) — According to La Crosse County Medical Examiner Tim Candahl, two people have died from drug overdoses in the past three days.
Candahl says both overdose deaths involved fentanyl mixed in cocaine, something he said he doesn’t see often in the La Crosse area.
Both individuals who died were in their thirties.
Candahl says those with loved ones struggling with addiction should take steps to avoid overdosing, including having Narcan, an opioid reversal drug, available in an emergency.
