Two Narcan Resuscitations in One Night

Isla Vista, Calif. – Early this morning, deputies resuscitated two overdose patients, at two separate locations, less than an hour apart. At 2:34 a.m. today, deputies responded with County Fire and AMR to 6500-block of Trigo for an unconscious subject. When deputies arrived, they found an unconscious person who appeared to have overdosed on opioids. Deputies administered Narcan to the patient who quickly regained consciousness and was later transported to an area hospital by AMR for continued care.

At 3:02 a.m., deputies responded with County Fire and AMR to an additional call of an overdose in the 6600-block of Del Playa.
