|Authorities: 4 Alabama inmates hospitalized after overdose|
HUNTSVILLE — Four Alabama jail inmates were hospitalized over the weekend after overdosing on a “synthetic substance” that was sent to them through the mail, a sheriff’s office said.
The Madison County Jail inmates were taken to the hospital Saturday night, Huntsville Emergency Medical Services spokesman Don Webster said. Two of them were transported in serious condition and the other two were in non-life threatening condition, WAAY-TV reported.
Madison County Sheriff’s investigators said they think the inmates “intentionally ingested” the substance, which had been sent to them through the inmate mail system, according to a agency statement.
