Trooper Uses NARCAN to Save A Life

State Police say a Biddeford woman is lucky to be alive after she was found unresponsive behind the wheel with a needle sticking out of her arm.  A State Trooper administered NARCAN which revived her and she was treated and released from a Portland hospital.  The incident took place Tuesday afternoon when the woman drove her car into guardrails at the South Portland exit of the Maine Turnpike. When Trooper Jesse Duda arrived at the crash he found the woman slumped over her steering wheel unconscious and the needle was in her arm.   Duda gave the woman two doses of NARCAN and she was revived and taken to the hospital by ambulance.  The woman, who is 33, was not charged and her name is not being released. Damage to the car was minor.  NARCAN is the brand name for Naloxone, which is a nasal spray that helps reverse an opioid overdose and is available at most Maine pharmacies without a prescription .  The Maine Department of Health and Human Services has a link to Naloxone and its benefits.
