    Happy the child was revived, not happy the Narcan injector was left on the ground for kids to pick up.
    I would think the responding Officers, EMR’s, etc would be trained better than that. Unsightly for one but also a safety issue I would think. I appreciate 1st responders but to the one that discarded the Narcan, don’t be a douche.
