SHOUT OUT: Fair Lawn police rescued an overdosing car passenger with Narcan in the parking lot of an adult day care center this afternoon.

A caller at Broadway Adult Daycare summoned police at 1:50 p.m., Sgt. Brian Metzler said.

Officers Louis Evangelista, Michael O’Brien, Luke Hintzen, Robert Manning and Michael Franco found the 19-year-old Bergenfield man unresponsive in a 2000 Chevrolt with New York license plates, he said.

Evangelista administered a single dose of Narcan and the man responded soon after, Metzler said.

Fair Lawn Volunteer Ambulance EMTs Tamar Lesnoy and Jon Ryan took him to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center.

It was the second Narcan save for Fair Lawn police since the program was instituted in Bergen County.
