Narcan training proves life-saving in Naperville heroin overdose

Two Naperville police officers had a chance to put their newly acquired death-thwarting skill into practice Jan. 23, when they responded to a report of a teenaged girl in the throes of a drug overdose.

Officers Jason Duffy and Jeremy Womack were credited with saving the life of the 17-year-old, who was found unconscious in the bedroom of an apartment in the 700 block of Benedetti Drive just before 10:30 p.m., police said.

Duffy and Womack delivered a nasal dose of naloxone, marketed under the trade name Narcan, and the girl regained consciousness before Naperville Fire Department paramedics arrived and took her to Edward Hospital for treatment.
