Quick thinking local police are credited with saving a Hudson Valley man's life at Walmart.

On Sunday, officers from the Town of Wallkill Police Department responded to an emergency medical service call at the Walmart in the Town of Wallkill.

Arriving officers found a 30-year-old man from Chester unconscious on the sidewalk. The man was unresponsive and demonstrating signs of an overdose, police say.

Officers began administering emergency first aid, including the use of department-issued nasally delivered Narcan, a drug which is known to reverse the effects from an opioid overdose.

After the second dose of Narcan, the unnamed man regained consciousness and was transported by Goshen Volunteer ambulance to Orange Regional Medical Center.
