SHOUT OUTS: Two Tenafly police officers rescued a victim suffering a heroin overdose in a residence last night, in the department’s first Narcan save.

Lt. Ralph Lawrance and Sgt. Nicholas Roux found the 23-year-old man unconscious, unresponsive and having difficulty breathing just before 10:30 p.m., Capt. Michael deMoncada told CLIFFVIEW PILOT this afternoon.

Roux administered two doses of Narcan, and the man quickly regained consciousness as his breathing improved, deMoncada said.

The Tenafly Volunteer Ambulance Corps took him to Englewood Medical Center, where he was recovering.
