CAMDEN - A Cooper University Health Care nurse who was on his way home from work jumped into action to help save a drug overdose victim. The Camden County Prosecutor's Office says that Mark Morrato, an Assistant Clinical Director at Cooper's Heart Institute, was driving home on Interstate 6-76 in Camden on the evening of Monday, December 7th. That's when he saw a Captain with the Camden County Prosecutor's Office helping to give CPR to someone on the side of the road. Morrato pulled over, took over CPR, and was able to revive the man through chest compressions. The 20-year-old Gloucester City man was then taken to the hospital for treatment.
