Oakland Police Officers Use Narcan to Revive Suspected Overdose Victim

Oakland police officers used the medication Naloxone to help save an unconscious man brought Saturday morning to an East Oakland police substation, police said Saturday afternoon.

A car pulled in about 9 a.m. Saturday to the Eastmont substation at 2651 73rd Ave., the driver telling officers his passenger was unconscious.

Officers began cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and, having determined the man may have had a drug overdose, administered Naloxone - known also as Narcan.

Police said that the man was revived and taken to a local hospital, where he was listed Saturday afternoon in stable condition.
