KILL DEVIL HILLS, N.C. (AP) - Police officers in Kill Devil Hills have revived an unconscious man after administering a dose of naloxone and using an automatic defibrillator.

Media outlets report that a visitor called police Wednesday after seeing a man in his car slumped over in the driver’s seat in South Kill Devil Hills.

According to a statement from police, Lt. John Towler responded and administered a four-milligram dose of naloxone through the man’s nose just two hours after getting issued the drug and receiving training on how to use it. Naloxone is used to reverse the effects of some prescription drugs. Police say the application of the naloxone had a “rapid perceptible effect on the man’s pulse, color and breathing.”

The man was taken to Outer Banks Hospital for treatment.
