Racine County Sheriff's Deputy uses NARCAN to revive man

UNION GROVE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A 34-year-old man is alive after the Racine County Sheriff's Office says a deputy used NARCAN  to revive him. 

The Sheriff's Office says the deputy was on patrol in the Village of Union Grove and came upon a man slumped over in the driver's seat of a suspicious vehicle parked in a parking lot of Leider Park around 8:20 Monday morning. After seeing that the man was turning blue, the Sheriff's Office says the deputy called for a rescue squad and began assessing the man's medical needs. 

After the deputy gave the man a dose of NARCAN, the man began breathing on his own, his eyes opened, and he regained consciousness. 

The 34-year-old was then taken to an area hospital for treatment. 

The Sheriff's Office says this is the 28th save by deputies. The Racine County Sheriff's Office first began equipping patrol cars with Narcan in February 2014.
