State troopers used Naloxone on Friday to calm a woman suffering a medical condition, apparently related to prescription medications.
Responding to a 911 call from a Lockport Road home, troopers found the woman on a rear porch, lying down, screaming and incoherent. It was determined the woman was on a number of prescription medications, including Hydrocodone.
Rural Metro Ambulance paramedics also responded to the scene and tried to administer Naloxone intravenously without success. Paramedics then requested a trooper attempt to administer the Naloxone through the nasal cavity, which proved successful as the woman quickly responded, calming down. As she became more rational, a second dose was administered a short time later by paramedics which helped to further quell the situation.
Rural Metro then transported the woman to Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center for further treatment.
The Niagara County Sheriff’s Office also assisted at the scene, according to state police
