Narcan saves a life in Cumberland Co.

Posted: Updated:
CUMBERLAND COUNTY - Authorities in Cumberland County say they've successfully used the opiate overdose reversing drug, Narcan to save a life.

The Millville Rescue Squad says last Friday, they responded to a call of an unconscious man on East Vine Street.

After determining the man was overdosing, they administered Narcan. Officials say it had an immediate positive effect on his critical condition.

He was transported to the hospital and has fully recovered.

Governor Christie signed legislation a month ago allowing the use of Narcan by emergency crews statewide.
