LODI, N.J. -- Police rescued a 24-year-old drug overdose victim with Narcan.

Officer Javier Hernandez administered three doses before the victim came around at a Norwood Avenue home on Wednesday, Detective Sgt. Justin Bertone said.

Having turned blue, his eyelids half shut, the victim "began mumbling words" as his skin color changed, Bertone said.

An EMS crew took him to Hackensack University Medical Center.

After the third deployment the victim began to have eye movement, skin pigmentation became normal and was mumbling words. Emergency medical personnel arrived and transported the victim to HUMC.
