On Monday, Ken Stoves was among officers responding to a call of a possible overdose victim in a home on Devonshire Lane. Stoves successfully administered naloxone, which revives victims of opiate overdoses, to a man who was not breathing, police said.

After about a minute, the man began breathing again and regained consciousness, according to Park City Police Chief Walter Holderbaum.
