Penn Yan Police Officer Derek Chisom is being credited with saving the life of a man that had overdosed in the village over the weekend.
When officers arrived on scene, they found an unconscious male that was blue in the face and barely breathing lying on a bathroom floor. Officers also located a used needle nearby. Officer Chisom administered two doses of naloxone and performed sternum rubs, which worked to revive the man, who was then taken to Soldiers and Sailors Hosptial.
Village Police have administered naloxone four times so far this year.
