[ARCHIVED] Sheriff’s Deputies Save Life Using Naloxone and CPR

On February 18, 2017 at approximately 6:20PM, Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the 33600 block of North Evergreen Drive, unincorporated Grayslake, to assist paramedics with a possible overdose.

When sheriff’s deputies arrived, they located a 23 year-old man, unconscious and not breathing. Deputies determined the man was likely suffering an opioid overdose and Deputy Ashley Pomazal administered two doses of Naloxone. Deputy Michael Bassi performed CPR, before a third dose of Naloxone was administered. The man then started breathing on his own and regained consciousness. The man was transported to a local hospital, where he’s expected to recover.

This is the fifth life saved to opioid overdose by Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies, just this year.
