PA Police Save Life of Man Suspected of Overdosing on Heroin

A video captured Upper Darby police officers administering a life-saving drug to a man suspected of overdosing on heroin late last week.

In the video, 25-year old Michael Meeney can be seen injecting what appeared to be heroin into his arm while riding a public bus. Shortly thereafter, he can be seen collapsing on the bus floor.

Police were called to the scene and were able to administer Narcan, a drug used to counteract heroin overdoses. 

Meeney was revived and transported to a local hospital for treatment. He remained in the hospital for five days before being released into police custody.

Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said of the event, "At least he is in the system and he can get treatment in the system."
