Quick action by law enforcement officials and rescue personnel saved a woman from overdosing on heroin at 3:40 a.m. Monday night in the bathroom at SAI Mart, 13600 7 Mild Rd.

A 33-year-old Wind Lake woman and 31-year-old West Allis woman were arrested for possession of heroin and drug paraphernalia after the 33-year-old woman overdosed after using heroin. Both have not been formally charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office, but charges have been submitted.

Officers from the Caledonia Police Department and deputies from the Racine County Sheriff’s Department responded to a call of a woman who had passed out in the bathroom at the gas station. Performing CPR on the older woman, the officers suspected that she overdosed on heroin and gave her a shot of Narcan, a drug that counteracts the effect of heroin.

After the officer gave the woman the shot, she did not respond to the medication and did not have a pulse. When rescue personnel from the Caledonia Fire Department arrived on scene they took over her care and gave her another dose of Narcan. She then responded and woke up, but she was combative.

Officers found heroin and drug paraphernalia at the scene. Rescue workers transported the woman to the emergency room at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare — All Saints Hospital. After being medically cleared, the two women were taken to the Racine County Jail. The younger woman is being held on a probation hold.

Bail for both women was set at $5,100.
