Narcan save reported by Stony Point cops

FROM SPPD

The Stony Point Police Department announces the successful revival of a 19-year-old female with the use of Narcan. Stony Point Police were called to a home on Lake Road in Stony Point at 1:55 a.m. on March 1, 2015.

The victim was reported to be having difficulty breathing and a possible seizure. The officer found the victim on a bedroom floor with shallow breathing and her lips turning blue. The officer administered one dose of Narcan and the victim became responsive and was later able to walk out to a waiting Stony Point Ambulance, which took the victim to Nyack Hospital for further evaluation and treatment.

Stony Point Police had another save earlier this year of a 27-year-old male who was unresponsive in a chair. On February 11, 2015 an officer responded to a Stony Point residence where he, assisted by Rockland Paramedic Service, administered Narcan and the victim’s breathing returned to normal. The victim was then taken to Nyack Hospital for further evaluation and treatment.

On August 21, 2014 Stony Point Police had its first save using Narcan. The Stony Point Police responded to a home where the victim was unconscious and family members advised he had ingested pills. The officer administered the Narcan, the victim regained consciousness and he was taken to Nyack Hospital for further evaluation and treatment.
