Police revive heroin user on Madison Avenue

A week after reviving a 24-year-old man who was suffering from a heroin overdose on Pemberton Drive, Trumbull police and EMS rescued a 27-year-old man who was found unconscious in his home on Madison Avenue at 3 a.m. Monday, Nov. 9.

According to a press release Monday morning, the victim was found unresponsive with evidence of recent heroin use scattered around the room.

First responders administered Narcan, an opiate-antagonist that  temporarily reverse the depression of the respiratory system and allow the person to breathe more effectively, and the victim became conscious.

Police said he was transported to St. Vincent’s Hospital by Trumbull EMS.

The victim was the fifth heroin user that Trumbull police had to revive with Narcan since July 14.

There have been three overdose victims in Trumbull since Oct. 18 — all three incidents involved Trumbull residents overdosing in their homes.
