Tulsa Deputy Saves Life with Overdose Kit

A Tulsa County Sheriff's Office deputy saved woman's life Tuesday evening in north Tulsa.

TCSO spokesperson Shannon Clark says deputy David Allen was able to promptly administer nasal Narcan, which is used to combat an overdose.

Clark said the patient was barely breathing when crews arrived, but after the deputy's quick response, the woman was breathing deeply.

Clark said this is the first time a Tulsa Co. deputy has successfully used Narcan for an opioid overdose.

The organization has recently been participating in an overdose prevention program. Deputies are given an Narcan overdose kit after they complete the training.
