YONKERS - A Yonkers woman was saved from overdosing on heroin after police administered a life-saving drug.

Police administered Naloxone, or Narcan, to the 28-year-old woman. The drug reverses the effects of a heroin overdose.

Yonkers police received dozens of Narcan kits last week and now all emergency vehicles in the city are equipped with them.

Police are not identifying the woman who was rescued, but say she has been released from the hospital.
