Two Broadway men and a woman were arrested on Tuesday after Lee County Sheriff’s Office narcotics agents and patrol division deputies had to revive a 1-year-old child using Narcan — a drug typically used to treat opioid overdose.
Deputies arrived at a home at 401 Forest Avenue to assist Broadway Police with an EMS call in reference to the unresponsive child. When deputies arrived, FirstHealth medical personnel and Cape Fear Fire Department first responders were conducting life-saving treatment on the child before Narcan was administered. Once the child was resuscitate, they were transported to a hospital for more treatment and observation.
