From addict to crusader: A new leader emerges in Minnesota's Indian community

James Cross feared the man was already dead when he found him unconscious and slumped against the doorway of a portable toilet inside a crowded homeless camp in south Minneapolis.

After yelling for help, Cross frantically pumped the man’s chest and took turns breathing into his mouth, to no avail, before stabbing him six times in the thigh with syringes of Narcan, a drug that reverses the effects of heroin. When emergency workers arrived, the man had already come back to life and was cradling his head on Cross’ shoulders, according to people who witnessed the rescue.
