Deputies Administer Naloxone to Revive Patient in Lovettsville

A call to investigate a suspicious person laying on a Lovettsville sidewalk Monday may have resulted in another life-saving act by Loudoun deputies.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called to assist rescue crews with a female laying unconscious on the sidewalk at East Broad Way and South Loudoun Street. Arriving deputies determined that she was not breathing and displayed symptoms of a suspected heroin overdose. They administered the nasal opiate antidote Naloxone.

The female became conscious and alert and was transported to a hospital for treatment.

After a pilot program started last December to train 31 deputies to administer Naloxone, the program was expanded in the spring with the goal of having all Loudoun deputies carry the antidote.
