Spokane Valley Deputy revives a woman with Narcan

On July 6, a Spokane Valley Deputy revived a woman suffering from a heroin overdose.

At around 1:50 a.m., Deputy Michael Vincini responded to a medical call at a Spokane Valley apartment. There, he found a woman in her 20s drifting in and out of consciousness on her bed. She was described as pale, limp and unresponsive.

Deputy Vincini moved her to the floor, where he was able to detect a faint pulse on her.

He gave her a nasal spray of Narcan, but she was still unresponsive. After a second dose, the color returned to her face and she began to breathe again.

The Spokane Valley Fire Department arrived shortly after and took over. The woman soon became fully alert, and was able to walk on her own to an ambulance. She was taken to the hospital for further treatment.
