For the second time in just over a week, Saugerties Police called to respond to a report of an unconscious local resident likely saved a life.
Early this morning, 12:52 a.m., police responded to a home on Blue Mt. Rd on a report of a 30-year-old woman overdosing on heroin. Police responded and administered NARCAN, which revived the victim, who was then transported to Health Alliance in Kingston for further evaluation.
The incident follows fast on a March 1 call for a man passed out a vehicle at local diner, who was also revived with NARCAN, a tool police only started carrying relatively recently.
