Dutchess County Police Save Teen’s Life at Stewarts
Police from Dutchess County are credited with saving a teen's life.
On Friday around 5 p.m., Red Hook Police received a 911 call reporting an unconscious female in the parking lot of Stewarts Shops in the Village of Red Hook.
Officer Sterritt and Officer Ferry of the Red Hook Police Department arrived on scene within one minute of being dispatched and located a 19-year-old woman unconscious and not breathing in a vehicle in the parking lot, police say.
Officers removed the teen from the vehicle and immediately determined she was suffering from a drug overdose, according to police.
Officers administered a dose of Narcan which originally had little effect. After a second dose was administered, the woman began breathing and regaining consciousness. Narcan is a drug which is known to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.
Red Hook EMS and Northern Dutchess Paramedics arrived on scene and continued medical treatment. Police allege they found heroin while searching the woman's belongings.
The female was transported to Mid Hudson Regional hospital for further treatment.
