She's only been a pharmacist for a few months.
But when a woman overdosed in the City of Poughkeepsie Rite Aid parking lot, 23-year-old Sara Kissinger sprang into action, administering two doses of the opioid overdose reversal drug naloxone and reviving the unconscious woman.
"I'm still shaking a little bit," said Kissinger, who spoke to the Journal about 20 minutes after she revived the woman on Tuesday afternoon. "It definitely was scary."
