MILLTOWN, NJ - Using the anti-overdose drug Narcan, Milltown police were able to revive a 56-year-old resident who was suffering from the depressed blood pressure and slow heartbeat caused by an overdose yesterday.  

According to a report issued today, Sargent Christopher Witt and Patrolman Michael Dinis were dispatched around 2:26 pm to a medical call regarding an unresponsive male.  The officers were able to revive the man after administering Narcan.  (Narcan is the commercial name for the drug Nalaxone, which is used to treat acute overdose symptoms that could cause death.  It is not a treatment for opioid addiction.)

As Sgt. Witt and Ptl. Dinis prepared toleave the sc3ene, they were called to another emergency on East Lawrence Street.  A ltree service employee had been struck by a falling tree limb which had fallen on him and broken his leg.  with the aid of Milltown Patrolman Shawn Holland, the same officers rendered emergency medical assistance.
