(NEWSER) – Police found rapper DMX unconscious and without a pulse Monday evening outside a Ramada Inn in Yonkers, New York, the AP reports. “Signs point to an overdose,” according to TMZ. A witness reported seeing DMX taking some sort of powder before collapsing. And officers who arrived at the scene administered Narcan—a medication used to treat overdoses—in addition to performing CPR and giving oxygen. DMX was successfully revived in the parking lot and transported to an area hospital. “Short story…cops saved his life,” TMZ states. The rapper, who has asthma, denies taking any drugs. He says he’s been short of breath since a recent bout of bronchitis. A family member says the rapper asked for his inhaler immediately before collapsing. DMX’s attorney says the rapper has recovered since Monday’s incident.
