‘Mass Overdose’ in California House Leaves 1 Dead, 12 in the Hospital

1 dead, 4 in critical condition at mass overdose in California house

The Daily Mail is reporting one man dead and 12 more hospitalized after "mass overdose" in California caused by fentanyl.

A dozen people were taken out of the house Saturday morning and brought to hospitals, the Enterprise-Record reported.

'We were waiting, and have been waiting unfortunately, for this to happen in the sense that we knew fentanyl had been moving west, ' O'Brien said.

"Upon arrival, Chico police officers found multiple individuals in what appeared to be life-threatening, overdose conditions", Chico Police Chief Michael O'Brien told reporters.

Chico Fire Chief Steven Standridge described it as "a mass casualty incident" that saw four fire engines and Butte County's entire fleet of eight ambulances at the scene.

As of about 10 pm last night, nine people were still in the hospital, four in critical condition, two in serious condition, and three in fair condition. For now the home is being treated as a hazmat zone, but police say there is no immediate risk to neighbors.

The Highlands MP added: "I would like the House of Commons now to take control because the Prime Minister has failed to give leadership".

The drug is so potent that two officers who responded to the home started to feel its effects and were transported to a hospital for examination, then released.

Officers have obtained a search warrant of the house, which is now being treated as a "hazmat site".

He said the cause of death for the male victim is likely a drug overdose, but he added that it is too early in the investigation.

"We do respond to many, many overdoses and particularly with the opioid crisis that is occurring everywhere in this country, to include Chico, California, we want to have in the hands of officers, who are often the first to arrive on scene, the ability to administer a life-saving drug", he said.

O'Brien said a narcotics task force is investigating the origin of the fentanyl, which may have been mixed with other substances. "That is changing unfortunately. and now we've have this MCI (mass casualty incident)...that concerns us all".

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a report in December calling fentanyl the "deadliest drug in America", surpassing drugs like cocaine and heroin.
