Eaton County Sheriff’s Deputy Pete Walter was in the area of the Citgo gas station on West Saginaw Highway about 2 p.m. yesterday when a 911 call came in of a woman possibly in cardiac arrest at the station, according to a sheriff’s office news release.
Walter responded and found a 20-year-old woman who did not appear to be breathing with a faint pulse, unconscious and turning blue. He administered a dose of Narcan to no effect, got two more does from his patrol car and gave her those, one in each nostril.
The woman was still unresponsive when EMS arrived and put her into an ambulance; eight minutes later, she was conscious and talking to medics.
“Sheriff (Tom) Reich praises Deputy Walter and Delta Fire EMS for their quick actions that helped save this young woman’s life,” the release said.
