Bodycam Shows Cops Save Overdosing Man With Narcan in Florida

** (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) **
The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office released a video which showed a man with what they say are all the signs of an overdose. He had a strong pulse but wasn’t breathing, pinpoint pupils, and he began turning blue in the face. The responding deputies administered Narcan, or naloxone hydrochloride. The drug essentially reverses an overdose. Within three minutes, the man became responsive. “Our main goal here is to save lives, to give a person another chance,” said Corporal Sherryl Johnson-Tandy, who tracks the agency’s Narcan use and provides deputies with training. The man in the video got another chance because the deputies carried Narcan on them. “2017 was the first year that Pasco County began to experience some of the consequences associated with the opioid crisis,” said Captain Mike Jenkins.

The chemical agent has been deployed 65 times in Pasco County since March of 2017 to those who have overdosed on opioids. In 63 of those cases, Narcan revived the person. “This drug does not work if it’s a cocaine-related,” said Cpl. Johnson-Tandy. “It only works on opioids. Both of those had actual cocaine in their systems.” More than 900 Pasco County employees are trained to use Narcan. More than 660 deputies carry rescue kits on them every day. “We recognize that we cannot arrest our way out of this problem,” said Capt. Jenkins. “So, the deployment of Narcan is one of the strategies we are utilizing to address this issue.” Narcan is a one-time use nasal spray or it can also be administered intravenously.

  1. I just have zero sympathy for these people. Sorry, I just don’t care if they die. Every god damn one of them is slowly committing suicide so let them live or die on their own terms!

  2. I wish i had this stuff when i was saving my mother from an overdose. I think god i didnt leave the house that night. Life is valuable

  3. What a loser, he probably tried to get money from working just to get drugs. UG UAGH UAGHU UAGH LOSER

  4. Defund the police!!!! No we will not, they save more people than they kill, and those that get killed are 99% of the time criminals that deserved it.

  5. This is BS… people have to pay for life saving epi pens or insulin.. But a damn addict gets NARCAN free because HE CHOSE TO GET HIGH.. That's wrong

  6. I just love how they are in absolutely no rush to help this man, shit is crazy. Don’t so drugs guys you will have someone careless like police officers trying to help you, they don’t want to help you. That’s not something they are taught. Cops are people that got picked on in school and want revenge or they are too fat and lazy for the military so they have to settle for the police academy 😂😂 this is legit information
