This Tuesday, Código 10 arrived again at Cuatro by the hand of Nacho Abad and David Aleman with several notable moments. One of them has to do with the Daniel Sancho case and the alleged four reconstructions of the crime against Edwin Arrieta. However, there was another one that stood out due to the tension that was experienced in full direct, and all due to the investigation of a team from the program on fentanyl, the so-called zombie drug.
It happened when the reporter sent to Philadelphia to cover this topic had to run away terrified by the aggression of the dealers who sell the aforementioned illegal substance. Abad and Aleman's concern for their partner was such that they asked him to end the connection and leave the place.
Fentanyl, also known as the zombie drug, is a devastating drug that is taking the United States by storm. Fifty times more powerful than heroin and one hundred times stronger than morphine, its use has not stopped growing. So much so that two milligrams of this substance, barely fifteen grains of salt measured by weight, can kill a human being.
Well, this synthetic drug is wreaking havoc in cities like New York and Philadelphia. In fact, in the latter it has become the epicenter of one of the worst pandemics for drug addicts due to this substance.
A team from Código 10 traveled to the Kensington neighborhood to record images of the consumption of this zombie drug that, in addition to killing the population, is generating great violence. A situation that Toni Rigo, a reporter for the program, and his camera suffered in his own flesh.
In fact, while the journalist waited to begin the connection with the set, where Nacho Abad and David Aleman were, the young man explained that they had to change location on the run because of the camels. And he added that he had suffered an assault by said criminals a few hours before while they were trying to record the consequences of fentanyl.
“Everything has fortunately ended in a great scare, but we cannot let our guard down because we are in one of the most dangerous neighborhoods, not only in Philadelphia, but in the United States. Just a few minutes ago we heard a shot, we are surrounded by fentanyl”, Rigo explained in full live connection, and without stopping looking to the sides to verify that they had not been followed.
"The problem is not them, the addicts, it's the drug dealers because the media are not well received," the reporter confessed, still scared to death. After broadcasting the report on fentanyl, which even featured an addict taking drugs, the presenters decided to abruptly fire Rigo so that he would be safe.
