Durham Hero: Officer saves VSA woman’s life

Durham Regional Police Service (DRPS) was at the fore again with an officer saving the life of a woman who had no vital signs.

On Saturday November 11 at about 1:50 pm, a member of the DRPS Central East Division responded to a call for a female not breathing in the area of Simcoe Street South and Fisher Street in Oshawa.

The officer arrived and found the female with vital signs absent (VSA).

The officer, upon advice that the female had possibly ingested and overdosed on fentanyl, began life saving measures and administered Narcan, said a police statement.

Due to the officer’s quick thinking, the female regained all vital signs.

She was taken to a local area hospital and is expected to make a full recovery, the statement said.

The officer was not named and no further details were released.
