ON AUGUST 3RD 2021 AT APPX 0252 HOURS, A VANGUARD PROTECTION OFFICER WAS PATROLLING A CLIENT PROPERTY IN SANTA CLARITA WHEN HE OBSERVED A MALE SUBJECT LAYING ON THE GROUND. BELIEVING IT MAY BE A TRANSIENT, HE WALKED OVER TO MAKE CONTACT WITH THE INDIVIDUAL.

UPON GETTING CLOSER, HE OBSERVED THAT THE MALE APPEARED TO BE EITHER SEVERELY INTOXICATED OR POSSIBLY INJURED. THE OFFICER ATTEMPTED TO WAKE UP THE SUBJECT FOR SEVERAL MINUTES BUT THE MALE WAS UNRESPONSIVE. WHILE STILL BREATHING, THE MALE COULD BE HEARD STRUGGLING TO BREATHE AND APPEARED TO BE SUFFERING FROM SOMETHING MORE SERIOUS THAN JUST LIQUOR INTOXICATION.

A CALL WAS PLACED TO THE LASD AND LAFD FOR MEDICAL UNITS TO RESPOND. SHORTLY THEREAFTER LAFD PARAMEDICS ARRIVED AND TOOK THE SUBJECT'S VITALS, STATING THAT THE MALE "DIDN'T HAVE MUCH LONGER TO LIVE" AND THAT OUR OFFICER "SAVED HIS LIFE." THE MALE SUBJECT WAS THEN RUSHED TO HENRY MAYO HOSPITAL IN SANTA CLARITA FOR TREATMENT. IT WAS LATER DETERMINED THAT THE MALE HAD  OVERDOSED ON FENTANYL.

***UPDATE*** WE ARE VERY HAPPY TO REPORT THAT THE MALE WAS SUCCESSFULLY TREATED AT THE HOSPITAL AND WILL MAKE A FULL RECOVERY.
