Good Samaritan law
Transcript - Good Samaritan law
[Text on screen: "Witness an opioid overdose?"]
[The word "opioid" is magnified to reveal its smallest component parts, a collection of identical dots. One dot begins to tremble and all the dots around it scatter except for two.]
Narrator: "If you witness an opioid overdose, don't turn away. Stay and help."
[The trembling dot begins to pulse in place and the two others approach it.]
Narrator: "Even if you've taken drugs or have some on you, the Good Samaritan Law can protect you. You could be the difference between life and death."
[The scattered dots return and cluster around the pulsing one, soothing it into stillness.]
Narrator: "Call 911 and follow their instructions. Administer naloxone if you have it."
[The dots recede until they reveal the outline of a woman on her knees leaning over an unconscious man. She holds a phone to her ear.]
Narrator: "Stay until help arrives. The Good Samaritan Law can protect you."
[Text on screen: "Call 911, stay and help. Learn more at Canada.ca/Opioids"]
Narrator: "A message from the government of Canada."
