Dead, 14 Hospitalized After Mass Overdose At Chico Home

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

A "mass overdose" in a California home Saturday morning left one person dead and another 12 hospitalized after police say the victims may have ingested fentanyl, a powerful opioid.

O'Brien said it's believed to have been a form of fentanyl that was mixed with another unknown substance.

According to local reports, an unnamed man died while another 12 were rushed to hospital, with four of them in a critical condition. O' Brien said the ages of the victims range from 19 to at least 30.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation was performed on six people at the scene and a total of 12 were taken to the hospital, Steve Standridge, chief of Chico's fire department, said.

"Upon arrival, Chico police officers found multiple individuals in what appeared to be life-threatening overdose conditions".

"These substances are extraordinarily unsafe, and it takes a very minute amount to cause lifesaving conditions", O'Brien said.

Two police officers who had been exposed to the fentanyl were also treated at the hospital and released in "good condition", O'Brien said. Chico police have been equipped with naloxone since 2018.

Meanwhile, it's not clear where the Fentanyl originated and if there are more batches being sold around Chico, O'Brien said.

O'Brien said that the overdose "could have been a lot worse" without a speedy emergency response. It blocks or reverses the effects of opioids and is often carried by first responders.

"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 told the Bee, saying that Fentanyl hasn't been a major problem in Chicago.

Over the past few years, Fentanyl has increasingly been responsible for overdose deaths across the United States.

"In China, you have some pretty big companies sending that garbage and killing our people", Trump added. The drug can be between 80 and 100 times more potent than morphine, according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
