The incident occurred at a home on Ocean Front Walk near Santa Barbara Place, according to San Diego police


A man died and two others were hospitalized early Tuesday after they apparently overdosed at a Mission Beach home, authorities said.

Police said someone at the home on Ocean Front Walk near Santa Barbara Place called 911 about 2:35 a.m. and said the men had returned from a party and passed out. The men, in their 20s, were unconscious but breathing, the caller told police.

The caller then said one of the men had stopped breathing. A dispatcher on the line instructed the caller to start chest compressions.

Officers and paramedics arrived and took over. They administered Narcan — medication that can reverse the effects of opioid overdoses.

One of the men died at the scene, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department. The two others were taken to a hospital.

An update on their condition was not immediately available.
