Officers at Eastern Michigan University saved a 54 year-old man's life over the weekend using the drug Naloxone.
It was the department’s first life saved by using the anti-overdose drug.
Eastern Michigan Police Department Chief Bob Heighes says officers received training recently with the drug.
"[It was] a great effort by the officers at Eastern. Again, [they were] out servicing the entire community around the campus. They saved a person’s life and that’s the key thing, be it a student or non-student [life].”
Officers Phillip Beasley and Kyle Johnson responded to the call around 3 AM Saturday morning. The incident occurred a few blocks south of campus.
