BOONE COUNTY, Ind. – A man who overdosed on drugs over the weekend was rescued with the help of a dog.

According to The Lebanon Reporter, Guy and Sara Kubina were visiting with others Sunday evening when their 9-year-old dog, Ginger, began barking.

The couple soon realized that there was a man on their property.  They say he was sitting on a four-wheeler, saying things that didn’t make sense, “punching the air,” and more.

Eventually, they called 9-1-1, and the man fell unconscious.

When Boone County Sheriff’s Deputy Jonathan Barnes arrived, he used Narcan to help revive the man, who was then taken to the hospital.
