Lakewood police officers are being credited with saving two local residents with the anti-overdose drug Narcan after they were dispatched to a home on East County Line Road Saturday night.

The call originally came into the department reporting one person was overdosing on drugs, but when Officer Brandon Burkhardt arrived, he found two victims, police said.

Burkhardt used Narcan to revive a victim identified as a 27-year-old man from Point Pleasant, whose unresponsive body was slumped across two chairs. While the officer was reviving the man, EMTs on scene revived a second victim, a 43-year-old woman from Toms River, who was found in the living room.


Both patients were successfully revived and were transported to Monmouth Medical Southern Campus for further evaluation, police said.

While police provided the names of the victims, Shorebeat voluntarily withheld them for privacy purposes.

      I know! that damn racist Obama! When will he finally see the struggle of us Whites! I personally saw him sell the heroine to these individuals, and to make matters worse his motorcade blocked the first responders that were trying to get to the scene! When will his reign of terror end?!
