SHOUT OUT: A pair of Upper Saddle River police officers had the department’s first Narcan save tonight when they rescued a 21-year-old woman who’d overdosed on heroin.

Officer Craig Parrella and Officer Anthonly Pulizzano responded to the woman’s parents’ call at a home on the west side of town at 5:20 p.m. and found the woman “unconscious and heavily laboring to breathe,” Detective Lt. Eddie Kane told CLIFFVIEW PILOT tonight.

They administered the drug, which brought her around, Kane said.

Paramedics then transported her to an area hospital, he said.
