PERE MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP — Michigan State Police Trooper Jacob Grinwis and Mason County Sheriff’s Deputy John Balowski saved a 22-year-old Ludington man from a drug overdose on US 31 Tuesday, July 25, at 4:45 a.m., according to MSP Sgt. Adam Clement.

Trooper Grinwis “rolled up” on the man’s vehicle, which was parked along northbound US 31 near mile marker 165, Clement said. The man, who was by himself, was unconscious, unresponsive and “ceasing to breathe.” Deputy Balowski arrived to assist Grinwis, and they administered Narcan and performed rescue breathing to revive the man, Clement said.

Emergency medical personnel arrived at the scene and took over rescue efforts, Clement said. He was transported by ambulance to Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital for further treatment.

Drugs, including “several different prescription pills” and marijuana, were seized from the vehicle, Clement said.
