(MURFREESBORO) Sadly, some things don't change as a result of the pandemic. One of those is the use of drugs, as evidenced Wednesday when first responders rushed to a local apartment complex in response to a 911 call about an unresponsive man was found lying on the floor in his living room.

Officers with the Murfreesboro Police Department were first on-the-scene, followed by paramedics from Murfreesboro Fire Rescue along with an ambulance and administrator from Rutherford County Emergency Medical Services.

Murfreesboro Police spokesperson Larry Flowers said, "EMS administered a dose of Narcan and transported the victim to Ascension St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital where he became alert and responsive."

Officers made contact with the victim at the hospital who stated he did not take anything and could not remember exactly what happened.

WGNS is not releasing details of the location of this incident, because it would not serve any positive purpose. Instead, this story is to underscore the need not to use drugs and to spotlight the local emergency responders who do make a difference in everyone's lives on a daily basis.
