UTICA – A man had to be issued Naloxone after overdosing at the Oneida County Office Building Tuesday morning, according to Oneida County Sheriff Rob Maciol.

Maciol says around 8:50 a.m. Tuesday, a man in his 20s overdosed on an unknown substance at the Oneida County Office Building. The man walked toward sheriff’s deputies and asked for help and an ambulance, then passed out.

Maciol says that attempts to keep the man conscious were unsuccessful, and deputies administered Naloxone, making him semi-conscious until members of the Utica Fire Department arrived.

The man was taken to St. Elizabeth Medical Center by the fire department for further treatment.
