"I immediately took my Narcan out, squirted a milligram of Narcan into her nose and within about 20 seconds [she] took this big gasping breath," said Woodstock, Georgia, police officer Shane Bonebrake as he recounts saving a woman from overdose with the anti-opioid Naloxone. Bonebrake discusses the usage of opioid antidotes by police in this brief video about the emergency drug Naloxone. More multimedia reporting about Naloxone and its use in combatting opioid overdose will be published later in the year.
