House of Blues defends response to overdoses

Providing new details about three drug overdoses at a nightclub last week, House of Blues employees defended the club’s security policies during a Boston City Hall licensing hearing Wednesday, while police said they are seeking to determine the source of the drug that led to the death of one club patron.

In testimony before the head of the city’s Licensing Board, House of Blues employees described a harrowing scene of sudden collapses and injuries on the night of Aug. 27. One woman had fallen down on the dance floor, but told security she was fine. She wanted to go back to the concert, and refused medical treatment.
