SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. (WTNH) – South Windsor Police officers administered Narcan to a man found unconscious and breathing.
Officers were dispatched to a home on Woodside Drive around 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday.
A man who lived there told police that his son was not breathing and that he had a history of heroin use.
The man later regained consciousness and was taken to Hartford Hospital for further evaluation and care.
The officer who administered the Narcan was among the first in the South Windsor Police Department to be trained to use it.
Narcan is a prescription medicine that blocks the effects of opioids and reverses an overdose.
