ORADELL, N.J. —Police made two Narcan saves of separate heroin overdose victims in less than 24 hours.

Officers Joseph Maino and Kyle Costa found a 19-year-old Summit Avenue man unresponsive and having difficulty breathing following a 911 call around 10 p.m. Friday.

Two doses brought the victim around, and he was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center.

Two doses did the same for a 52-year-old Kinderkamack Road man around 3:45 p.m. Saturday after Sgt. Victor Egg and Officer Michael Bartlett responded along with New Milford Lt. Kevin Kiene.

The victim -- who initially wasn't breathing and didn't have a pulse -- was taken to The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood.
