HUDSON – An investigation into the death of a Hudson man Thursday morning is ongoing, Police Chief L. Edward Moore said.

The unidentified man, 73, was pronounced dead at his home in Bliss Towers. His name is on hold until family members are notified, Moore said.

At about 8:31 a.m., Columbia County 911 Greenport Rescue Squad was dispatched to Bliss Towers at 41 N. Second St. after reports were received that a man was in cardiac arrest.

The Hudson Police, who were monitoring the call, also responded to the scene.

The police were the first to arrive and give the man Narcan. Narcan is a prescription drug that the company website says is used to reverse a known or suspected overdose of opioids.

Greenport Rescue Squad arrived at the apartment and tried to resuscitate him, Moore said.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene by Columbia County’s coroner Daniel Herrick. The cause of death has not been determined, Moore said.

The police are waiting for the results of toxicological reports. It can take several weeks for results to be available again, Moore said.

The investigation is still ongoing.

Six Hudson police officers and detectives were on the scene Thursday morning, Moore said.
