Newly released body cam video shows a Fort Dodge Officer nearly died while performing a routine traffic stop after fentanyl got into his system.
According to KCCI, the officer stopped Kayla Potter for a traffic stop and took her into custody after she gave him a fake ID and information.
While the officer was inspecting her vehicle he came into contact with an unknown substance.
That substance, believed to be fentanyl, somehow got airborne and the officer breathed it in.
He immediately began feeling lightheaded and called for medical help.
When the medics arrived on the scene, the officer was already unresponsive.
They gave him two doses of Narcan just to revive him.
The officer is now recovering at home.
