San Benito County Sheriff’s office issues press release on overdose resuscitation

Originally published via Facebook by the San Benito County Sheriff’s Office:

“Deputy Espejo and his trainee, Deputy Vallejo, responded to a call for an overdose in the Santana Ranch neighborhood Saturday night.

Upon arrival, Deputy Espejo recognized the male patient appeared to have overdosed on an opiate. Knowing the epidemic we have been seeing with the opioid crisis, and reflecting on training he had received from our county partners at San Benito County Office of Emergency Services, Deputy Espejo administered Naloxone (Narcan) he was carrying in his patrol car.

The Nalaxone worked as intended and the male was revived. The male was later tended to by American Medical Response medics and Hollister Fire Department. He was transported to the hospital for much needed attention.”
