ORLANDO, Fla. – Three Orange County sheriff’s deputies were taken to a hospital after the Sheriff’s Office says they were exposed to the powerful synthetic opioid fentanyl.

Deputies on Friday afternoon arrested a man on felony narcotics charges.  While on their way to the jail, deputies say the suspect began showing signs of an overdose, so they administered Narcan, which is a medication used to block the effects of opioids.

Back-up units responded, including the fire department; however, during the incident, the three deputies say they began to feel the effects of a possible overdose after somehow being exposed to fentanyl.
