A Loudoun County deputy administered an opiate overdose antidote to revive a man found unconscious in a vehicle Tuesday.
Deputies were called to the scene in the 1500 block Hillsboro Road north of Purcellville about 2 p.m. May 31.
According to the Sheriff’s Office report, the first arriving deputy assessed the situation as a likely heroin overdose. He administered Narcan to the patient. The man was revived and transported to a hospital for treatment.
The case remains under investigation.
Loudoun deputies are carrying the treatment drug as part of a new LCSO initiative to combat the wave of overdoses.
