Deputies use naloxone to revive man

Sandusky Register Staff • May 13, 2014 at 4:40 PM

Huron police asked deputies for mutual aid at about 11:30 p.m. Sunday after they received a report of a possible overdose in the 2000 block of Linden Drive.

When deputies arrived, they found a motionless 23-year-old man on the floor, according to a deputy’s report. The man’s father said he’d just entered their trailer then became totally unresponsive.

Noting track marks on the man’s arm which are indicative of heroin use, Deputy Daniel Orzech grabbed a dose of naloxone — commonly known as Narcan — and administered it to the man. Within two minutes, the man jolted awake.

He was able to answer paramedics’ questions and was taken to Firelands Regional Medical Center for treatment. Deputies just began carrying Narcan in their kits May 2.
