16 heroin overdoses at Vancouver injection site

VANCOUVER — Sixteen people overdosed on heroin at Vancouver’s supervised injection site Sunday — well exceeding the weekly average of 10, Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) spokesman Gavin Wilson said.

“We normally see about 10 per week as sort of a maximum,” he said. “So 16 in one 24-hour period is quite a cause for concern.”
