Chico overdose: One dead and 12 in hospital after 'mass drug overdose'

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

"It certainly would have been far worse without the response and dispensing of naloxone by Chico police officers", O'Brien said.

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

One person is dead and 12 others hospitalized after suspected fentanyl overdoses in California that sickened two responding police officers, authorities said.

At 9.52 p.m. on Saturday evening, four people were reportedly in critical condition, two in serious condition and three others in fair condition. The drug has been blamed for a wave of overdose deaths across the nation.

One person was declared dead at the house.

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

Officers administered CPR and six doses of Naloxone, an opioid-reversal drug, when they arrived on the scene.

"Certainly there is potential for additional fatalities", O'Brien said.

Two officers were also transported to the hospital after being exposed to the drug.

They were treated for exposure to fentanyl or a fentanyl-like substance while they were helping the victims.

"We had four fire engines; all of the Butte EMS were on scene as well".

Chico Fire Department Division Chief Jesse Alexander said he saw six people being treated with CPR at the same time and described the incident as the largest mass casualty he's witnessed of the same nature in years.

The drugs are "extraordinarily risky", O'Brien noted, saying that even small amounts can be life-threatening, according to the Bee.

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

For now the home is being treated as a hazmat zone, but police say there is no immediate risk to neighbors. "That is changing unfortunately. and now we've have this MCI (mass casualty incident)...that concerns us all". The drug is a synthetic opioid which is typically combined with heroin.

"In China, you have some pretty big companies sending that garbage and killing our people", Trump added.

Fentanyl is "50 to 100 times more potent than morphine", according to the Centers for Disease Control.
