Another overdose victim was revived using Narcan Thursday afternoon, according to Nassau County Police.
A 911 call sent police and AMTs rushing to Barnes Avenue in Baldwin at 4:55 p.m. Thursday, cops said. Responding officers found an 18-year-old man who was unresponsive after overdosing on an "unknown opium drug," police said.
AMTs quickly administered a dosage of the drug Narcan which revived the victim, whose identity was not released.
The victim was brought to a nearby hospital for further medical evaluation.
Thursday's incident is the sixth reported by Nassau County Police where Narcan was used to revive an overdose victim. Reports have been scattered across the south shore in Massapequa, Massapequa Park, Wantagh, and Merrick.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced plans last week to make Narcan available for all first responders in the state.
