Officers Save Two People in Rochester-Area Incidents
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Two local law enforcement officers were involved in life-saving situations Tuesday.
Olmsted County rookie deputy Jordan Anderson was sent to a home in the Chester area around 2:45 a.m. to check a report of an unresponsive man. Anderson found the 48-year-old man on the floor of his bedroom and was told he had ingested some heroin. Anderson gave him a nasal dose of Narcan and the man was revived. He was taken to St Marys Hospital where he was apparently treated and released.
This was the first time the Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office has used the anti-overdose drug.
The other incident happened during the noon hour on the downtown Mayo Clinic campus. The driver of a tanker truck was in a Mayo parking lot near the intersection of 4th Ave and 4th St SW when he suddenly collapsed and hit his head on the ground. Rochester police officers began CPR and one used a defibrillator to revive the man. The 63-year-old Indiana man was taken to St. Marys for treatment.
