Lakewood Hatzolah members revive drug overdose patient found lying in parking lot

hatz ambulance tlsLakewood Hatzolah members this evening revived a drug overdose patient found lying unconscious in a parking lot downtown, Askonim and officials confirm to TLS.

Hatzolah, police were called about 6:25 PM after a driver nearly ran over the approximately 19-year-old lying motionless on the ground in a parking lot.

Upon arrival, two Lakewood Hatzolah members found the teen without a pulse and immediately administered Narcan. Police arrived moments later and also assisted in the resuscitation efforts. Several moments later, the teen regained a pulse.

“Had he not been found when he was – another two minutes – he would not have made it,” an official told TLS.

  1. A game changer, alright.
    Druggies have even less reason to worry about the consequences of their actions. No big deal if I pass out, they’ll just revive me with Narcan.

  2. Homeland Security Prevents and Dismantles over 99% of terrorist plots. Why can’t the same be done with “Dope”? It’s a desirable poison that’s destroying over 30% the American youth.

  3. If someone is revived from an overdose there should be a mandatory 1 week jail sentence and then mandatory rehab as an in patient. The rehab should be decided by the state not the patient .if people are this stupid it shouldn’t come with street cred. They need to be punished. The issue isn’t people dealing drugs it’s people gaining respect from others for taking them. Obviously if they weren’t available it would help but. But kids need to know drugs are for losers. Wanna get street cred join HTC or the marines.
    Losers!
