Heroin overdose antidote administered successfully for the first time in Middle Twp.

Posted: Updated:
Authorities in Middle Township say they administered the heroin overdose antidote, Narcan, for the first time, successfully.

Authorities say Friday afternoon they received a call about an unconscious, unresponsive woman in the Burleigh section of the township, who they believed was suffering from a possible overdose.

Upon arriving, officers determined the 20-year-old was suffering from a possible overdose.

After administering the Narcan, officials say the woman regained consciousness, and was taken to the hospital where she was listed in stable condition.

Members of the Middle Township Police Department just started carrying the Narcan kits last week, which have been supplied by the county prosecutor.
