Two men overdose, then get revived on sidewalk by Fond du Lac paramedics

Uncategorized Comments (0)

At about 5:30 on the morning of November 21, a woman had been driving down the road when she noticed two men laying down on the sidewalk. After further inspection, she had noticed that the two men were unresponsive. She then called in the paramedics.

“Obviously in this case there was a very alert citizen who saw something that was out of place for that neighborhood, that time of the morning, they stopped,” said Fond du Lac Fire/Rescue Chief Peter O’Leary.

Being in the right place at the right time is what saved these two men. If that woman had taken a different route or didn’t take the time to check on the two men, this could have been a totally different story.

“We don’t know how long they were out there,” said O’Leary.

The two men were conscious when they were transported to a local hospital where they were given dosages of Narcan, which is used in an opioid overdose to reverse the effects. So far it is unclear which type of opioids were in their systems.

As of now, the men are still being treated and their names have not been released to the public. More to come in the near future.
