Police Officer Saves Bayport Woman From Heroin Overdose

A 25-year-old Bayport woman was revived from a heroin overdose early Sunday morning by a Suffolk Police officer administrating Narcan, an intranasal medication.

According to Suffolk Police, the woman was at a Walgreens in Selden at 12:42 a.m. with a friend and began exhibiting signs of an overdose. The friend brought the woman to the Sixth Precinct for help, said police. Police Officer Michael Schneider administered the medication and revived the woman, according to police.

She was then transported by Selden Rescue to Stony Brook Hospital.

The Suffolk County Police Department recently began participating in a New York State Department of Health pilot program involving the deployment of intranasal Narcan. Currently, the Fourth, Sixth and Seventh Precincts and Marine Bureau are participating in this program.
