Police: Officers save two lives in Waterloo after apparent overdose

On Wednesday police in Waterloo responded to 21 Oak Street in the village for the report of two individuals, unconscious and not responding.

The Waterloo Police Department responded and discovered both subjects in bed, barely breathing and not responding to stimuli.

Sergeant Chechak and Patrolman Scaglione quickly recognized the symptoms shown as an overdose, and began to administer Narcan to both parties.

Both officers administered three, double dose viles of Narcan to each subject, which slowly revived them.

Members of North Seneca Ambulance assisted at the scene and transported them to Geneva General Hospital for treatment.

The life saving measures taken by both Sergeant Chechak and Officer Scaglione saved the lives of both parties involved.

The subjects were not identified by the Waterloo Police Department in an update to the media.
