Investigators say a fentanyl overdose is to blame for last month's death of a Bronx teacher.
Police say 36-year-old Matthew Azimi was found inside a bathroom at Public School X-811 in Foxhurst on November 30.
In an effort to fight the opiod crisis, Bronx Councilman Rafael Salamanca introduced legislation that would require the Department of Education to stock naloxone in public school buildings.
Salamanca's office said in a statement, "Matthew Azimi’s tragic passing demonstrates that the opioid epidemic can effect anyone, anywhere and as a city we need to come together to help prevent overdoses. Stocking naloxone in public places, including schools, could help."
Naloxone is a medication designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose.
