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.

The bitterly cold start to our Wednesday will inevitably lead to a cooler-than-average afternoon across the Tri-State. We're currently expecting an afternoon high of 26° in Evansville on Wednesday afternoon (that’s 17° below average for this time of the year). Temperatures will once again dive back down towards the teens for many of us overnight and into early Thursday. As for right now Thursday morning looks as though will be slightly warmer, but only just - believes model data indicates that we will see a morning low temperature of 14° under partly cloudy skies in Evansville tomorrow morning.
