Two men found dead from apparent heroin overdoses in Queens park


Two men were found dead of apparent heroin overdoses in a Queens park early Monday, police said.

The victims, ages 35 and 38, were discovered dead sitting on a bench in Sabba Park in Sunnyside just after 4 a.m. by a passerby who called 911. The park is a sliver of concrete and green space between the east and westbound lanes of Queens Blvd. near 50th St.

Packets of heroin were found next to their bodies, sources said. Their names were not immediately released.

The city Medical Examiner will conduct autopsies to determine their causes of death.
