A man who overdosed on heroin was saved by quick-acting Suffolk County Police officers Saturday morning in Fort Salonga.
Four Second Precinct officers responded to an Old Bridge Road home for an unresponsive man at 6:04 a.m.
Police said the 20-year-old victim was passed out in his bedroom from an apparent overdose.
Officer Joseph Mango administered intranasal Narcan and the man was rushed to Huntington Hospital by the East Northport Rescue Squad. The man regained consciousness en route to the hospital.
Officers Barbara Hernandez, Shane Wild and Michael Guido also assisted.
The department is participating in the state Department of Health pilot program involving the deployment of intranasal Narcan, a prescription drug used to reverse opiate overdoses.
