Hoboken Police Officers Steven Albert, Ramon Estrella, Joseph Lucignano and Marco Grossman were dispatched to 655 6th St. after a call of possible drug overdose, according to Police Det. Sgt. Edgardo Cruz.

The Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance transported the victim to the Hoboken University Medical Center for further treatment and the victim is expected to recover, officials said.
