Sheriff's Dept Saves Overdosed Woman

Written By Editor on 6/18/17 | 6/18/17

The Schoharie County Sheriff’s Office 911 Dispatchers took a call on 06/16/17 from a distraught woman within the county who had stated she wished to harm herself.  The woman terminated the call prior to deputies arrival and before dispatchers could gain other necessary information.  When deputies arrived shortly thereafter, they were unable to get anyone to come to the door and repeated calls to the residence yielded no result.

Deputies made entry to the home and found the woman inside, unresponsive.  Evidence on scene suggested she’d overdosed on opioid medications    Deputies utilized Naloxone to revive the individual and she had begun to come to by the time Emergency Medical Services arrived.  She was safely transported to Cooperstown Hospital for treatment.  The Department is thankful for the quick actions of our dispatchers, deputies and the emergency medical services crew.
