Local police are receiving some praise.
Late last week, members of the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP's Traffic and Crime Reduction Unit saved the life of a young man suffering from an opioid overdose.
During a traffic stop, a driver was placed in the back of the police vehicle and shortly afterwards was unresponsive. The man was removed from the vehicle and placed on the ground. Utilizing their training, RCMP members administered naloxone nasal spray and the man was revived.
Emergency Medical Services arrived soon after and transported him to the hospital for further treatment.
