HYDE PARK, N.Y. -- A Hyde Park man who had overdosed was resuscitated with the use of a drug that reverses the effects of opiates, according to a report in the Poughkeepsie Journal.

Police, who are trained in the use of naloxone, came to the aid of the 34-year-old unconscious victim on Monday and brought him around with the lifesaving nasal spray, the Poughkeepsie Journal reported.
