Town of Chenango, N.Y. (WBNG Binghamton) A Broome County Sheriff's deputy once again saved the life of a man set to die of a heroin overdose.
The deputy used Narcan -- also known as Naloxone -- is a nasal spray that chemically counteracts an opioid overdose.
In this case, responders were called to State Route 12 after a woman reported her friend had passed out and wasn't breathing
The sheriff's office said in a news release the 39-year-old man was a known heroin user.
After administering the Narcan, the victim came to and began breathing on his own.
This is the third instance of a sheriff's deputy using Narcan to save a life since agencies bought the kits in February.
