VIDEO: NYPD Officers Cope with Dozens of Synthetic Marijuana K2 "Zombies"

Dozens of half-dead people blindly staggered through the streets of a Brooklyn neighborhood known as “Zombieland” Tuesday morning, propping themselves up against fire hydrants and vomiting foam down their shirts.

But the apocalyptic scene wasn’t for a movie. The victims had apparently smoked a bad batch of the “synthetic marijuana” drug known as K2 — and 33 people had to be hospitalized.

“It looked like a scene out of ‘The Walking Dead,’ ” said Brian Arthur, a lifelong Brooklyn resident who posted footage of the disheartening scene on Facebook.

“These guys were wandering around, stumbling all over the place, and were completely out of it,” he told The New York Post. “They didn’t know their whereabouts, and some couldn’t even get up off the floor. One guy was even trying to hold himself up with a Johnny pump [fire hydrant]. It was ridiculous.”

The NYPD said the incident began around 9:40 a.m., with most of the subjects being found on the sidewalk and subway platforms near Broadway and Myrtle Avenue — a notorious spot for K2 users that has been dubbed “Zombieland” by police and residents.
