Dead, 14 Hospitalized After Mass Overdose At Chico Home

According to local reports, an unnamed man died while another 12 were rushed to hospital, with four of them in a critical condition.

The mass overdose appears to have been largely caused by the risky opioid fentanyl, Chico police Chief Mike O'Brien said at a news conference. "I want to emphasize that".

A dozen people were taken out of the house Saturday morning and brought to hospitals, police told the newspaper.

Chico Fire Department Chief Steven Standridge said the officers were "potentially exposed" to the drug, a synthetic opioidoften imported on the black market from China and Mexico to be used as a filler in heroin and other street narcotics.

First responders performed CPR and administered Naloxone, an opiate antidote, to revive several of the survivors.

Chico officers began carrying the antidote only previous year.

Captain O'Brien added: "It certainly would have been far worse without the response and dispensing of naloxone by Chico police officers. That is yet to be confirmed, but we do anticipate confirmation in the coming days", O'Brien said.

"Every indication is that this mass overdose incident was caused from the ingestion of some form of fentanyl in combination with another substance".

It appeared the victims, believed to be ages 19 to 30, all knew each other, the police chief said.

"The residence where this incident occurred is being treated as a hazmat site".

He said that while it is still too early in the investigation to be sure, the likely cause of death and injuries is from consumption of the potent drug.
