State Police Administer Narcan For First Time


State Police administered Narcan to an overdose victim on Monday for the first time.  Trooper James D’Angelo was assisting a Hopkinton Police Officer on a traffic stop when they noticed the passenger in the vehicle was unconscious and unresponsive.  The operator of the vehicle told officers that the passenger may have ingested a large quantity of Oxycodone pills.  Trooper D’Angelo administered the Narcan to the passenger through a nasal mist.  The passenger then received and intravenous dose of the drug while being transported to Westerly Hospital. The subject regained consciousness a short time later and is expected to recover.
