Greenburgh Police Save Two Overdose Victims

Stolen CarThis just in from the Greenburgh Police: On Friday January 19th, 2018 Greenburgh Police Department paramedics and officers responded to Michaels, a retail store located at 319 N. Central Avenue in Hartsdale, for a report of a woman in cardiac arrest. Hartsdale F.D personnel also responded to assist. Upon their arrival the GPD paramedics and officers located the woman and assessed that she was not breathing. A drug overdose was suspected as the cause. Medical attention, including the administering of Narcan, was provided and the woman began breathing again. Greenburgh P.D. personnel were able to gather enough information from her to discover that her husband was in a vehicle somewhere in the parking lot. He was quickly located and was found not breathing, likely from a heroin overdose. Medical attention, including the administering of Narcan, was provided and the male began breathing on his own again. Through their swift response, thinking, and actions Greenburgh Police personnel were able to provide life saving medical attention to not just one, but two patients.
