DMX almost died from a drug overdose

100 World News - The rapper DMX almost died from a drug overdose in Yonkers on Monday night — but cops saved his life, a police source said Tuesday.

The rapper, 45, was allegedly found unconscious after suffering an asthma attack in the Ramada Yonkers hotel parking lot. (He had apparently been sick with bronchitis the past couple of days.) He was complaining of shortness of breath at the time.

Police declined to identify DMX by name but said the 45-year-old victim from Mt. Kisco purportedly ingested “some sort of substance” before going into distress.

Four cops gave him CPR and a medic injected him with Narcan, an anti-opioid used to reverse the effects of a heroin overdose, the police source said.

An unidentified witness who was with DMX — whose real name is Earl Simmons — then reportedly told cops the rapper had ingested the mystery substance.

No drugs were found at the scene and no criminal charges were filed, the police source said.

Simmons was arrested in October for allegedly failing to pay $10,000 a month in child support,
according to the Journal News.
