Ohio State student pharmacy selling overdose saving drug

Channel 10 news - Wed, 12/06/2017 - 19:24

The Ohio State University joins the fight against opioids, offering students a chance to save their loved ones from an overdose.

The Wilce Student Health Center pharmacy is selling Naloxone over the counter to those who may need it.

The push for the life-saving drug comes after some students said there's a need for it.

Almost everyone knows of someone who has overdosed.

Even college students see what's happening in their city.

"It's really sad. I think there's some things that can be done to change that," student Kayla Nist said.

Health experts say it starts with education and The Ohio State University is already teaching its students about the opioid epidemic.

The Wilce Student Health Center pharmacy started selling Naloxone last September to students who asked for it.

"Either a boyfriend or girlfriend or family member. It's almost always that case. I've had one person purchase it cause they saw someone in their neighborhood go, where they had to call an emergency squad," pharmacy manager Phillip Anderson said.

The pharmacy has only sold about 6 kits so far, but manager Phillip Anderson says it's more about showing students how to use it.

"Part of us selling this is we explain how to use it, we explain what the symptoms of an opiate overdose looks like," Anderson said.

Anderson says a survey done prior to the school stocking up on Naloxone showed about 1/3 of Ohio State students knew what it was.

"I know that it's the drug to give to people who overdose, I think on heroin, and it essentially brings them back to life," student Jacob Bourquin said.

Even if some students don't know anyone who's overdosed, they say it's important to have access to the life-saving drug.

"Some people I know have friends that have overdosed. They weren't there at the time but it's like if they were it would have been important for them to have it on them," Nist said.

And some students still think it's a good idea to be ready.

"If more people have it and they encounter somebody who has overdosed it could be a good thing I believe," Bourquin said.

The Naloxone kits go for about $90. It comes with two doses and instructions on how to administer it.

According to the Franklin County Coroner's Office, 28 college-aged people died from an overdose so far this year.

In 2016, statistics show 56 people died from an overdose ages 20-29.

Authorities identify remains of missing North Carolina child

Channel 10 news - Wed, 12/06/2017 - 18:25

Authorities in North Carolina have positively identified the body of a 3-year-old girl who was reported missing from her home 10 days ago.

Local media outlets report the Onslow County Sheriff's Office confirmed on Wednesday that the remains were those of Mariah Woods. The news came as mourners gathered for a visitation at a funeral home.

Mariah's body was found in a creek less than a day after her mother's boyfriend was charged with hiding her body after knowing she didn't die of natural causes.

Earl Kimrey, the live-in boyfriend of Mariah's mother, is charged with concealing of death. No charges have been filed in the girl's death.

Kelsey Mitchell becomes Ohio State's leading scorer

Channel 10 news - Wed, 12/06/2017 - 18:21

Kelsey Mitchell became Ohio State's all-time leading scorer in the first quarter and the 12th-ranked Buckeyes beat Florida 103-77 on Wednesday night.

Mitchell, who leads the nation with 25.7 points per game, needed just eight points to tie the record and she broke it on a runner in the lane. She passed Jantel Lavender (2,818 points, 2008-11) of the Los Angeles Sparks.

Mitchell was 12-of-22 shooting for 30 points. She extended her Division I career 3-point record with four makes from distance to sit at 415.

Sierra Calhoun added three 3-pointers and 21 points for Ohio State (9-2). Linnae Harper scored 18 points and reached 1,000 career points on a layup in the fourth quarter. The Buckeyes are seventh in the country at 89.5 points per game and have topped the century mark three times this season.

Mitchell made three 3-pointers in the first quarter and had 15 points to help OSU build a 31-18 lead. Ohio State led 51-38 at the half behind Mitchell's four 3s and 20 points. The Buckeyes shot 51 percent in the half.

Haley Lorenzen led Florida (5-4) with 17 points. Funda Nakkasoglu scored 14 of her 16 points in the first half.

Paulina Hersler's 4-point play pulled Florida within 60-54 with five minutes left in the third but OSU answered with a 12-2 run for a commanding lead again.

State rep wants to use 1996 law to keep Crew in Columbus

Channel 10 news - Wed, 12/06/2017 - 17:58

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A state lawmaker is trying to keep Columbus Crew SC in Columbus and a law from 1996 may be the key.

Rep. Mike Duffey, R-Worthington, said he is asking Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine to consider the law and block Crew SC’s potential move through legal action.

News broke earlier this year that the owner of the Columbus Crew, Anthony Precourt, is looking to move the team - possibly to Austin, Texas.

Rep. Duffey said the law came to be after Art Modell moved the Cleveland Browns to Baltimore. Modell owned the Browns at the time.

He said it states owners of professional sports teams in Ohio cannot move the team under the following conditions: If they use facilities supported by taxpayers or public money and do not provide six months of advance notice and they do not allow the city or the people who live near the facility an opportunity to buy the team.

Crew SC plays at MAPFRE Stadium which is on tax-exempt state land and uses leased state land for parking, according to Rep. Duffey.

Precourt Sports Ventures provided the following statement to 10TV: “Precourt Sports Ventures has seen the public remarks made by State Rep. Mike Duffey and PSV will not have further comment at this time.”

The Ohio Attorney General's Office sent 10TV the following statement: "We have received Representative Duffey's letter and have initiated a review of the matter."

Day of Giving: Izzy's Story

Channel 10 news - Wed, 12/06/2017 - 17:09

Over 10,000 patients will visit Nationwide Children's Hospital over the holiday season, and all will be cared for, regardless of a family's ability to pay.

Today we are partnering with the hospital for our annual "Day of Giving." It's a fundraising effort here in Central Ohio that helps provide the best medical care possible for children in our community.

DONATE: 10TV.com/giving

Izzy Ford is a sweet six-year-old who has been a patient of Nationwide Children's nearly her whole life.

Sixteen weeks into the pregnancy, adoptive parents Kelly and Ashley ford learned their daughter would be born with down syndrome.

“We were going to adopt her regardless of having a disability or not,” Ashley said.

Kelly added, “I feel like it was kind of God's way to prepare us for what was going to…for what life was going to be like. What it could be like.”

Shortly after Izzy's birth, the Fords were referred to the Down Syndrome Clinic at Nationwide Children's Hospital.

Kelly said, “They (were) like our lifeline in the beginning.”

And then just six months into her young life, Izzy developed some pulmonary issues that required a 14-day stay at the hospital.

“That was when we developed that whole new appreciation for the hospital,” Kelly explained. They were truly amazing. Not only the care they provided for Izzy, but you know, helping us along the way.”

The reason Nationwide Children's Hospital is able to provide such care is because of donations and the generosity of the people in the community.

Kelly said, “I can't express the gratitude from people being generous. It's heart-warming, it truly is. But it also means so much to let those generous people who donate that the money truly goes to those in need."

While the physical care of six-year-old Izzy is of the utmost importance, the emotional support provided to her parents is invaluable as well.

“To be able to come here and you know, have them give, you know all the professionals, the care that she gets…I can't, I wouldn't want to go anywhere else and I can't imagine what it would be without them,” said Kelly.

Ashley stated, “I don't think she would be as healthy as she is today or as strong as she is today if it wasn't for being here."

Ashley and Kelly Ford said the care Izzy has received at Nationwide Children's Hospital is nothing short of amazing, and that the staff at the hospital are kindhearted people and you can truly tell they have a love for their profession in the way they care for their patients.

Today is our chance to give. To make a donation for our "Day of Giving" please call (614) 469-10TV (1088) OR toll-free (855) 746-1088.

COTA workers fear the impact of driverless buses

Channel 10 news - Wed, 12/06/2017 - 15:24

The Transport Workers Union #208 of Columbus attended a transportation and public safety hearing at the Statehouse Wednesday. Their message was a simple one: "Please don't take our jobs".

Ohio legislators are considering driverless buses for public transportation. But, current bus operators worry about the impact the technology will have on their jobs.

"It just doesn't seem like it's going to go well," said DeAnna Baker, a mother of 6 and a bus operator for 5 years. "When I have had to actually stand up and put on the breaks because someone just walks into the street, I do not see how an autonomous bus is going to handle that well."

Union president Andrew Jordan testified before state representatives to talk about the potential impact on jobs and safety.

"We question the safety of this technology and caution against trading human error for computer error," Jordan said.

The group of bus operators in attendance wore masks that read "We will not be silenced."

"If bus drivers lose their jobs, they face the prospect of low wage employment or unemployment and the potential reliance on public benefits," said Jordan.

Bus drivers can make as much as $28 per hour.

Legislators are still in the research phase and have not yet made any decisions on driverless buses.

Parents of Franklin County inmate say he died from fentanyl

Channel 10 news - Wed, 12/06/2017 - 15:12

COLUMBUS -- The parents of a Franklin County inmate who died in October say drug tests show their son had fentanyl in his system when he died.

They want to know how that could happen?

Debbie Gibney says her son Brent had been in the Franklin County jail for seven months awaiting trial on robbery charges when he was found unconscious in his cell October 1.

Debbie says for weeks she has called the Franklin County coroner's office asking for information about how her son died. For weeks she was told nothing. Then last week, she said a coroner gave her the preliminary findings over the phone – Brent had fentanyl in his system.

"It was horror. How in the world could this happen in the county jail? He should be safe there. How did that deadly poison get to him?" Debbie Gibney told 10 Investigates during a phone interview Tuesday.

10 Investigates reached out to the Franklin County Coroner's office for an explanation. We were told they could not provide the preliminary cause of death information over the phone to anyone other than the next of kin. A final report on Gibney's death could be available in the coming weeks, 10 Investigates was told.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Department is still investigating the incident. A department spokesman previously told 10 Investigates that Gibney was found unresponsive in his cell and transported to Grant Medical Center where he died three days later. But Brent's mother, Debbie Gibney, tells 10 Investigates she and her husband have concerns over Brent's care.

"I immediately called the detective and said 'how did this happen?' and he was polite but I was basically told we are at a standstill until they get the information themselves in the report," Debbie Gibney told 10 Investigates. "I want to know how this could possibly get to him in there. He had been in there seven months... we are just so angry that this could even reach him in there."

A copy of the offense report provided to 10 Investigates shows that Brent Gibney was found in his cell with an "unknown white powder."

Medical records provided to 10 Investigates show that Gibney had 53.5 ng/ml of fentanyl in his urine along with 20.6 ng/ml of norfentanyl in his urine, which was collected on October 2, two days before he died.

10 Investigates has filed open records requests with the Franklin County Sheriff's department, but the department has declined to provide any documents while the investigation is still pending.

Brent's father posted a video to Facebook Tuesday morning saying he knows his son had struggled with opioid addiction but thought he would kick his habit in jail.

He expressed disappointment with the Franklin County Jail.

A jail spokeswoman said Tuesday the investigation into the incident is still an open investigation.

Columbus police investigating dozens of dollar store robberies

Channel 10 news - Wed, 12/06/2017 - 14:08

The Columbus Division of Police is urging shoppers to keep their eyes open when they're shopping at popular dollar stores during the holiday season.

Police say they're investigating a rising number of robberies at shoppers' favorite places to stock up on affordable holiday decorations and stocking stuffers.

The most recent crime happened Tuesday morning at a Family Dollar store in the 6400 block of Winchester Pike in southeast Columbus.

Police say a clerk chased 21-year-old Malik Benjamin out of the store after she says he tried to conceal several items in his pants. The apparent shoplifting escalated to a felony robbery when officers say Benjamin punched the female clerk in the chest.

Police say the incident is the most recent robbery at a dollar store, but not the most violent. CrimeTracker 10 obtained surveillance footage which shows two men wearing masks walking into a Family Dollar store on West Broad Street with a gun ready.

In April, a robber punched a clerk in the face at a Dollar General on Parsons Avenue. Police say the clerk fell and was knocked unconscious.

In June, surveillance camera video shows a clerk at a Dollar Store on East Main Street held up with a gun to her back. Police say so far, detectives have investigated 73 robberies at dollars stores across the city of Columbus in 2017.

"I think it is more of a cash-driven business and that may be one factor," said Columbus Police Robbery Sergeant Shaun Laird.

Police say in many cases, a neighborhood dollar store may be one of only a handful of retailers that's easily accessible to would-be robbers who want quick cash.

"So, those businesses are out there and there's a whole lot of them so there's a lot of potential targets if that's what you're looking for," said Sgt. Laird.

Police say robbers often wait for customers to clear the store before they make their move, so detectives urge you to pay attention if someone appears to be deliberately stalling or waiting for you to check out. Police say above all, trust your gut instinct and call police if you believe someone is "casing" a store.
