Philadelphia, Pennsylvania —A story out of the Philadelphia area is serving as a reminder of the devastation wrought by the opioid epidemic.
According to WPVI, two police officers were patrolling the Allegheny Station area in Kensington around 4 p.m. Monday.
A passerby alerted the officers to a pregnant female who was unconscious. They administered Narcan to the woman twice before she regained consciousness.
"At that time, the Philadelphia Fire Department came over to the location and she refused their services. She didn't want to go to the hospital. She didn't want any kind of medical treatment. She got up and left the area," SEPTA Police Lt. Michael Fox said.
