Recently, I wrote an article about the rising cases of needle spiking at bars and nightclubs in England.  Houston police are now are investigating reported cases of needle spiking at the Astroworld festival where eight people died and hundreds of others injured.  Police Chief Troy Finner said one victim was a security guard that told police he felt a "prick" in his neck as chaos broke out at the festival.  The victim became unconscious while being assessed by first responders and was revived by Narcan.

As police continue to investigate, hopefully more will be known about the deaths and injuries occurring at the festival.
