Nov. 4, 2022 – Authorities administered three doses of Naloxone, also known as Narcan, which is an opioid overdose treatment, to both teens while administering CPR.

Within minutes, the teens began breathing again. They were transported to a local hospital and later released to their parents. “If not for the swift, decisive action of these deputies, both young men would have become lives claimed by the opioid pandemic,” said L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva.

“Fentanyl is a pharmaceutical drug created to help patients with pain management,” explained deputies. “It is approximately 100 times more potent than morphine and 50 times more powerful than heroin. Fentanyl is one of the most dangerous and deadly substances ever produced. Illicit drug manufacturers and distributors discovered Fentanyl offers a very effective replacement filler or supplement to street-level drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine.
