Overdose survivor thanks first responder

GRATEFUL — Tiana Cleck, an overdose survivor, is pictured with Eric Zaney, Adams Regional Emergency Medical Services chief.

A mother of three — who is also an addict in recovery — is thankful for her life and told the paramedic who saved her.

Tiana Cleck, 32, of Hanover, who said she did heroin, crack cocaine, marijuana and other drugs wrote a letter to Eric Zaney, a paramedic and Emergency Medical Services chief with Adams Regional Emergency Medical Services, Gettysburg, last month expressing her gratitude for bringing her back from the brink of death. Zaney provided Narcan, a fast-acting opioid overdose medication, to Cleck when she overdosed in 2015.
