Law Enforcement Officials Commended for Saving a Life

Montpelier Police Officer Hunter Lane, Montpelier Detective Alesha Donovan, and Vermont State Police Trooper Ryan Riegler have been commended, according to the City Manager’s report dated April 13, for saving a life on Feb. 23, when they responded to a call that pivoted into a first response to a drug overdose. Officer Lane and Detective Donovan went to the area in the call and found a vehicle stopped along the shoulder of State Street out where it becomes U.S. Route 2. They determined the passenger was overdosing on drugs, and Lane administered several doses of NARCAN opiate blocker and called an ambulance. Lane directed the driver to move the vehicle out of the roadway, where he and Donovan extracted the unresponsive passenger onto the muddy, snowy shoulder. Detective Donovan began administering CPR as Trooper Riegler of the Vermont State Police arrived on scene and provided an automated external defibrillator. The patient recovered consciousness thanks to the efforts of Lane, Donovan, and Riegler and was transported to the hospital.
