On Wednesday March 18, 2015, Patrol Officers from the Fort Lee Police Department responded to Starbucks, located at 1605 Lemoine Avenue on a 911 call of a possible overdose. A concerned citizen called 911 to report the medical emergency, and the caller along with another good Samaritan began CPR at the instructions of Fort Lee’s 911 Dispatcher Donna Iafelice. PO Stephen Domenick and PO John C. Klein arrived on scene and immediately continued to render first aid. PO Domenick found the victim was barely breathing and had a very light pulse, and he administered one dose of Narcan to the victim who immediately responded. After the first dose, PO Klein began to rescue breathing while PO Domenick continued to assess the victim. PO Domenick administered a second dose of Narcan and the victim began reacting positively. The Fort Lee Volunteer Ambulance Corps and Paramedics arrived on scene and transported the victim to Holy Name Hospital for further medical treatment. The victim was not charged criminally. The victim’s identity is not being release due to the confidentiality of the medical call.
While on scene, a friend of the victim Jake A. LEVY was found to be in possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, and he was placed under arrest by PO Klein. Mr. Levy stated he and his friend had an argument inside of Starbucks. During the argument, Levy went to use the bathroom and when he returned he noticed the police were on scene rendering first aid to his friend. Levy was unaware that his friend was in medical distress until he exited the restroom and saw first responders treating his friend. The swift actions of the two citizens who called 911 and performed CPR were of a great assistance to the victim, the Fort Lee Police Department and the Fort Lee Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
