Deputies Save Overdose Victim in Hobart

Written By Editor on 12/22/17 | 12/22/17

On Thursday night, December 14, Delaware County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a
911 report of an unconscious man at a residence in the Village of Hobart with CPR being
administered by citizens. Upon the arrival, the Deputy located an unresponsive 20 year
old male. After observing the man’s condition, the Deputy recognized indications that the
man was likely suffering from an opioid overdose and administered Narcan (Naloxone).
After several doses of Narcan, the man regained consciousness and was transported by
ambulance to the O’Connor Hospital Emergency Department for further treatment.
Deputies located and seized three (3) bundles of suspected heroin from the subject prior
to him being transported to the hospital for further treatment.

The Delaware County Sheriff's Office reminds the public that New York’s “911
Good Samaritan” law provides protections from charge and prosecution for drug and
alcohol possession for the victim and those who seek help for an overdose victim. If
someone suspects that a loved one is experiencing a drug or alcohol overdose don’t
hesitate to call for help, as early intervention is an important factor in their recovery.
