A Columbus, Ohio, police officer is alive today following the heroic actions of his fellow police officers.

According to WBNS-TV, the cop's fellow officers jumped into action on Sunday and administered Narcan to him after he inadvertently came in contact with an unknown substance during a drug bust and became nearly unresponsive.

What happened?

In a video obtained by WBNS, an officer can be seen talking with a woman about drug possession and what she possessed that the other officer in question may have touched. During this officer's questioning, the officer who touched the unidentified substance can be seen sitting in the driver's seat of his parked patrol car, not looking very well at all.

"What is that? What is that that you have?" he can be heard asking the female suspect. "Is there fentanyl in it?"

The suspect answers, "Not that I know of."

The officer stops questioning the woman and goes to assist a third officer preparing the Narcan for administration.

After the officers prepare the Narcan and appear to administer it to the first officer, the first officer can be seen slumping over in the car and coughing. Narcan is squirted into the nose and is normally used to save someone who has overdosed.

He slithers out of the open driver's side door and lays down on his back on the ground.

The dramatic incident can be seen in bodycam footage obtained by WBNS.
