Burlington Police Save Man With New Heroin Treatment

As previously reported by BNEWS, the Burlington Police Department had its first successful use of NARCAN Nasal Spray. On August 24, Burlington officers responded to a 911 call from Arboretum Way regarding a potential heroin overdose. On arrival, they found a 24-year-old man convulsing on the floor, blue in the face and unresponsive. Police administered NARCAN to the man, who came around less than one minute later.

BNEWS Reporter Cory McNeil visited the Police Department and prepared this video report of the incident.
