RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A Virginia State Police trooper was in the right place at the right time Tuesday night when a Richmond police officer recognized he needed NARCAN after being exposed to narcotics during a drug arrest.
The Richmond Police Department says State Police Trooper A.T. Stuart was at the Richmond City Justice Center when the officer was in need.
In a Facebook post, RPD said the officer was having breathing difficulties and was turning pale. He recognized the symptoms of narcotics exposure and requested the NARCAN.
Stuart administered his department-issued NARCAN, which saved the officer’s life.
The officer was checked out of the hospital, and has returned home.
