Elderly Woman Saved by Deputy with Life Saving Drug

On April 10th, Deputy Brandon Gasparovic of the Parke County Sheriff’s Department was dispatched to a residence in reference to a welfare check on a female subject. When he arrived on scene, he found an elderly female unconscious and unresponsive. Recognizing the symptoms of an opioid overdose, Deputy Gasparovic administered the opioid overdose reversal drug, Nalaxone (Narcan) to the female and provided first aid until Owen County EMS could arrive on scene. It was later determined the elderly female had accidentally overdosed on her prescription medication. Without the quick acting of the deputy this woman would not be alive today.
