HOUSTON COUNTY, Ga. - Two people have died and dozens more have been hospitalized in middle Georgia after overdosing on a street drug they believed to be Percocet, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
GBI spokeswoman Nelly Miles tells the Atlanta-Journal Constitution that reports are still coming in and the number of deaths could increase.
Emergency workers responded in the last 48 hours to reports of overdoses in Centerville, Perry and Warner Robins, according to the GBI. However, the drugs might also behave been sold on the street in other areas of the state.

First responders said patients are unconscious or unresponsive and have difficulty breathing or have stopped breathing. Many patients had to be placed on ventilators.
The substance has not yet been identified but it is extremely potent and has required massive doses of naloxone (Narcan) to counteract its effects, authorities said. Testing is being done to identify the pills and the ingredients.
