A Fessenden man’s life was saved with naloxone, an opioid overdose reversal drug.

On September 29th at 8:26 p.m., a woman called 911 for a man who appeared to be overdosing at the 2900 block of N. 19th in Bismarck.

She says an unknown male knocked on her door and led her to a vehicle parked outside. There, she found the 20-year-old Fessenden male. The woman got in the car and drove with the two men to a nearby gas station. They pulled the victim out of the car, and the driver drove away while the woman waited for Metro Ambulance. 

Once they got on scene, paramedics administered naloxone, and the man gained consciousness shortly after. He then admitted to ingesting heroin earlier in the day. He was transported to the hospital for treatment.

Bismarck Police says they are in the process of having patrol officers carry naloxone, but the training hasn’t been conducted yet.
