Cops: Officers save woman who overdosed on heroin
The officers, Dennis Hendrickson and Kathy Cotter, responded to the emergency call on Wedgewood Drive about 2:30 p.m., police said.
A man there was already performing CPR on the woman, police said. The officers, who are both paramedics, police said, injected Narcan into her muscle, and she regained respiration and consciousness.
The deployment of the prescription drug to reverse opiate overdoses is part of a New York State Health Department pilot program.
