Fentanyl 'arrives' in California - Mass Overdose

One person died and another 12 were hospitalized after a mass overdose at a residence in Chico. Two remain in serious condition, three were in fair condition and four were in good condition.

The chief of police said they had been “waiting” for this to happen amid reports that fentanyl was heading west. The police chief said that authorities began carrying naloxone since 2018 as part of a grant from the local health department, and that lives were likely saved because of it. Cops gave six doses of Naloxone while administering CPR to those at the site.
