Maine State Trooper Saves Man’s Life in Plymouth With NARCAN
A Maine State Trooper acted quickly last week to save a man's life, according to a post on the Maint State Police's Facebook page.
Last Wednesday evening, Trooper Olmstead was parked at a baseball field in Plymouth when a woman came up to say she had driven by the boat landing where she saw a man splashing water on another man's face was in the driver's seat of a truck and was concerned.
When Trooper Olmstead approached the scene he heard a man yelling for help as he performed CPR on the other man. Olmstead rushed back to his cruiser and grabbed gloves and NARCAN, a drug used to block the effects of opioids. He gave the person one does and within 30 seconds he was conscious and breathing normally.
Thanks to the person who notified Trooper Olmstead, the person administering CPR and Trooper Olmesteads quick action in recognizing the situation, this man's life was saved.
This incident also shows that the opioid crisis in Maine is real. So if you or someone you know is struggling with opioid addiction or any other type of drug addiction, there is help for you.
The Maine Department of Health and Human Services has a website set up with resources available to Mainers and their loved ones dealing with addiction at knowyouroptions.me.
