Medical experts dispute a viral video that shows a rookie cop suffering seizures after contact exposure to fentanyl.

Police bodycam footage captured on July 3 shows San Diego County Deputy David Faiivae testing a white powdery substance believed to be fentanyl.

Corporal Scott Crane warns Faiivae to be careful while handling the substance.

"That's stuff's no joke, dude. That's super dangerous," Crane said.

Moments later, Faiivae seemed to experience convulsions and collapsed on the ground.

But medical experts disputed the claim that Faiivae overdosed on contact exposure to fentanyl.

"You cannot overdose just by touching fentanyl or another opioid and you cannot overdose just by being around it," Dr Ryan Marino told Reuters.

"It will not get into the air and cause anyone to overdose," said Marino, Medical Director of Toxicology & Addiction at University Hospitals, Cleveland.

"You cannot overdose through accidental contact. People do overdose accidentally, but it is people who are using drugs and either not expecting fentanyl or carfentanil, or something like that, or people who get an unknown dose because they are buying drugs from the street, so overdose that way."

Kassandra Frederique, executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance, told the Associated Press the viral video "simply creates more fear and irrational panic that fuels further punitive responses to the overdose crisis, instead of the public health approach we need."

And Leo Beletsky, a professor at the UC San Diego School of Medicine, told KGTV:

"There's zero chance that it was caused by fentanyl exposure, in this case. You would need to be in a room where lots of powder was constantly in the air for hours in order to start ingesting enough of it to experience these symptoms."

San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore clarified that he made the determination that Faiivae overdosed, not a medical doctor.

"I saw the video. Everybody that saw the video saw him seize up, go down, fall on his head," Gore told the San Diego Union-Tribune.

"The drugs tested for fentanyl. It was classic signs of fentanyl overdose - that's why we called it that. If we were misinformed, so be it. We are trying to correct [it]."

Kalina Collier is looking for work after she was let go by her former employer, JetBlue, for allegedly faking her kidnapping in Jamaica.

Collier reportedly made up the elaborate hoax to avoid being quarantined after testing positive for Covid-19.

Collier posted several videos on social media, claiming that her positive Covid-19 tests were fraudulent because the Jamaican government wanted to hold her at a hotel for sex trafficking or organ trafficking purposes.

Foreigners who test positive after arriving on the Caribbean island are quarantined in a hotel at the government's expense until they test negative.

Collier arrived in Jamaica on January 28 and was scheduled to depart on February 1. She previously tested positive using a rapid antigen test.

Not satisfied with the result, she took another test 30 minutes later, which turned out negative.

The Jamaican Health Ministry's protocol for false positive tests is to take a PCR test, which is determined to be more accurate.

On Feb. 2, Collier's test came back positive, which led to the quarantine order.

But Collier took to Instagram, claiming she was being held against her will in an unknown location for sex trafficking purposes.

Among those she reached out to include YouTube star and social media influencer Amanda Seales, who took up Collier's cause.

Soon the hashtag #FindKalinaCollier was trending on social media, as family and friends claimed they couldn't locate her in Jamaica.

Collier recorded videos on her cell phone, saying she didn't know where she was, or the day or date. She also alleged there were cameras in her room watching her.

But social media users quickly identified the "cameras" as motion sensors and smoke detectors.

After the news media picked up the kidnap story, the hotel provided video to show that Collier was being picked up from the hotel every day in a Mazda car driven by her mother.

Collier's story soon unraveled and she was terminated by JetBlue. She was cleared to leave the island on Feb. 15 after quarantining for 14 days.

Jamaican residents were understandably outraged by her behavior.

Translated: "This is what we have to resort to because she wants to draw Jamaica into the foolishness about kidnapping of a foreigner. We already have so much to deal with and this is what she picks??? Hurry up and go back to your country!!!!! Please and thank you."

Another wrote in Jamaican Patois:

(Translated: "You shouldn't have rented her the vehicle. Make her walk back home. Who is she to kidnap?")

JetBlue officials issued an apology to the Jamaican government and to the Jamaican people for the "frustration and concern this incident has caused and reiterate our confidence in the health protocols Jamaica has put in place."

Kimberly Jones and her son Keaton made headlines last week when she posted a video of the boy crying after schoolchildren bullied him and poured milk on him in the school lunchroom.
