100 Percent Fed Up– Spring breakers have converged in various hot spots across Florida. Much to the dismay of homeowners with short-term rentals in their neighborhoods, large groups of rowdy, young partiers will move into residential neighborhoods where they party 24/7 in homes rented through Airbnb, Vrbo, and other short-term rental companies.
Daily Mail – The students were staying in a short-term vacation rental home listed on VRBO for $360 per night. The 1,596-square-foot home features three bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as a large backyard with a private pool, according to the listing, and is a 15-minute walk to the beach.
The home was vacated of the renters by Friday evening, according to reports. It remains unclear if the suspect was staying at the rental property with the spring breakers.
On Thursday, police, and paramedics were called when six West Point cadets, two of whom are also football players required medical attention after overdosing on fentanyl-laced cocaine while staying at a Vrbo property in a Fort Lauderdale, Florida neighborhood.
Homeowners in the neighborhood where the VRBO is located described seeing the spring breakers being carried out of the rental home crowded with young vacationers.
Daily Mail reports – A suspect believed to be connected to the group of spring breakers who overdosed on cocaine laced with fentanyl was arrested in Florida, police confirmed to WSVN Friday night.
Police in Wilton Manors, a city located in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale metro area, did not release the suspect’s name or indicate their connection to the six West Point cadets who were hospitalized Thursday after overdosing on the drug.
A seventh individual, only identified as a woman, was later taken to the hospital and treated, the Sun-Sentinel reported. It is unclear if she suffered an overdose or what condition she is in. It is also unknown if she attended West Point with the other patients. As of late Friday, only three remained in the hospital, the TV station reported. Two were in critical condition and on ventilators. The other patient is said to be in stable condition.
‘We saw paramedics pulling the kids out of the house, unconscious, just laying them on the grass,’ Dana Fumosa, who lives a few doors down, told NBC6. (Click Here)
Neighbors in Wilton Manors told the Sun-Sentinel that the West Point cadets had been staying at the rental property for several days and that on Wednesday night, police were called for an unspecified reason.
Two local residents said they have repeatedly complained to the managers of the vacation property about excessive noise and rowdy parties.
Short-term rentals have turned quiet residential neighborhoods into nightmares for homeowners who are forced to contend with the clerkless hotels that are frequently used for week-long bachelor/bachelorette parties and young adults looking for unsupervised vacations. While many states and communities are working to ban short-term rentals, Michigan State lawmakers, led by Republicans in the House, recently passed House Bill 4722 that would strip MI residents of the ability to regulate or ban short-term rentals (commercial properties) from their neighborhoods and communities. If the MI Senate approves the legislation, Michigan will become a free-for-all state for owners of these commercial properties, many of whom live miles away or even out of state, leaving the responsibility of policing wild parties at their investment properties to the neighbors.
News helicopter video shows paramedics converging in the front yard of a short-term vacation rental home on NW 29th Court in Wilton Manors, where multiple people were found in cardiac arrest at 5 pm. Daily Mail reports – Fort Lauderdale Fire Department Battalion Chief Steve Gollan told Local10 that two of the people who overdosed were sickened because they tried to perform CPR on the initial four overdose victims. He said the opioid-overdose-reversing drug naloxone, sold under the brand name Narcan, was administered to revive the victims.
‘These are healthy young adults, college students in the prime of their life,’ Gollan said. ‘Getting this drug into their system, it’s unknown what the recovery will be on the critical individual.’
Inhabitants of popular vacation spots, including Cancun, Miami, Pensacola, Fort Lauderdale, and South Padre Island, have to deal with observing never-ending crowds of college students having a good time, often blasting loud music and drinking alcohol from the first week of March until April.
Shocking stories of short-term rentals gone wild are unfortunately becoming all too common.
In Phoenix, Arizona, a party at a short-term rental led to a shooting. Houses near the short-term-rental were riddled with bullets. Four bullet holes were found surrounding a bedroom window next door where small children were sleeping.
Here is another story of a party home in Las Vegas, NV that’s an LLC owned by a man in Memphis, TN:
Pray for these cadets.
Have you received Salvation from Jesus the Messiah? Time is running out. Jesus will return very soon. The signs of His return are everywhere in this crazy world we are living in. Please read below so that you can be saved. Jesus is the only way to Heaven. The Words below are directly from the Bible, so you can trust them.
For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)
If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all )is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)
“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. IF YOU KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. (John 15:9)
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
For those of us who persevere and do what Jesus says to do, we have this to look forward to in eternity: And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
