A 9-1-1 call in Washington Township Saturday night resulted in police officers reviving a 22-year-old and finding a party with underage drinking hosted by a township parent.
Cpl. Michael Glock and Officer Vincent Montalbano of the Washington Township Police Department were sent to a home on Valley Court in in the township Saturday, Jan. 29 shortly after 9 p.m. after headquarters received a report of an unconscious person.
When they arrived, they saw "several dozen juveniles with adult supervision possibly consuming alcoholic beverages," according to police.
Glock and Montalbano were directed to a 22-year-old male who was unresponsive and in a bathroom in the home. According to police, the officers could not detect a pulse and the man wasn't breathing.

After turning over medical treatment of the 22-year-old, Glock and Montalbano were directed to an 18-year-old male who police said was "visibly intoxicated and incoherent."
The teen was transported to Bergen Regional Medical Center in a Tri-Boro Ambulance, according to police.
