Township Police Officer Rescues Apparent Overdose Victim With Narcan

A 23-year-old North Brunswick woman was revived from an apparent overdose when a township police officer administered a dose of Narcan, police said.

Police were called to a Route 27 grocery store at about 1:15 p.m. on Feb. 29 on the report of an unconscious woman in the store’s bathroom, according to a press release from township police.

Ptl. Greg Wilson of the department’s Emergency Services Unit responded and found the woman to be unconscious and unresponsive, according to the release. Through his training and experience as an EMT, Wilson recognized the woman’s condition as a possible opiate overdose and administered Naloxone, commonly known as Narcan, to the woman, according to the release.

When paramedics and EMS personnel from Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital arrived on scene, the woman was awake, alert and oriented, the release said. She was transported to a local area hospital by emergency medical personnel for treatment.
