Last week, a University of Southern Indiana Public Safety Officer responded to an emergency call that saved the life of an unconscious teen near the campus in Evansville.

According to the University Facebook post, Officer Matt Gabrielli overheard an emergency call that was dispatched to a nearby residence off the campus.

The call was regarding a 16-year-old male that was possibly overdosing on narcotics. Gabrielli responded to the call finding the teen with a weak pulse.

The officer administered one dose of Narcan to the teen, who then regained consciousness, and was then transported to a local hospital where he fully recovered.
