Siebold was driving to a job site when he saw a young man running erratically along the road. The man fell into a ditch but managed to get up and run into a power pole before falling again. Through his rearview mirror, Siebold noticed that the individual did not get up a second time, so he pulled over and called 911.
Siebold went to the man’s location to make sure he was visible and stood by until the police arrived. The police recognized that he was overdosing and administered two shots of Narcan before the ambulance arrived. The young man was taken to the hospital and the police thanked Siebold for his actions. The individual would have died from the overdose had he not received help.
