BYRAM TOWNSHIP, NJ (Sussex County) – A 27-year-old man in Byram Township was revived by Narcan after overdosing twice in four hours on Sunday.

Police responded on July 14 to a report of CPR in progress at a Byram Township residence. When officers arrived, family members were performing chest compressions on the man, who was not breathing, police said.

Officers took over CPR and administered a dose of Naxolone, also known as Narcan, a drug used to reverse opiate overdoses, police said.

The man regained consciousness and was transported to a local hospital.

About four hours later, police responded back to the same address for a reported overdose, police said.

Officers provided medical care and the man was again transported to a local hospital.
