Eugene, Ore. – On June 20 at 3:38 p.m., Eugene Police arrived to the scene of a possible overdose in a car at 899 W. 6th Avenue and Adams Street.

 

 

To avoid the vehicle moving, a sergeant and officers pinned the car without causing any damage. They broke the passenger window of the involved car out, as the man inside was not breathing. Over the following minutes the Eugene Police personnel provided life-saving intervention including administering multiple Narcan doses, chest compressions, recovery position, and breathing via a CPR airbag device provided by an arriving Oregon State Police trooper. A local trauma surgeon was in the area and also provided assistance with life-saving measures.

 

 

Eugene Springfield Fire EMS arrived and cared for the 41-year-old Eugene man. Within about five minutes, he was alert and transported to a local hospital for treatment.

 

 

An illegal substance evidence was located and there was a subsequent DUII investigation and the man was cited in lieu of custody for DUII. Case 22-09355
