4 people found unconscious in Deltona home

DELTONA, Fla. (WFLA) — Four people were transported to local hospitals on Monday morning after they were found unconscious inside a Deltona home. A fifth person was also found in the home in a semi-conscious state.

A Volusia County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson said that at 8:29 a.m., deputies were called to a home at 777 Coleman Ave.

The “incident appears to be drug-related,” deputies said. Most of the victims were at an Orlando nightclub earlier in the evening, deputies said. The specific drug has not been identified, according to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.

All five persons remained hospitalized as of Monday afternoon. Two people are in critical condition. The other three people are conscious, officials said.

Three females and two males were inside the home. Two of the females lived together as roommates at the home. The victims are ages 21, 22, 23, 24 and 31.

The uncle of one of the two females went by the residence to check on her and found all five people in the home. Four persons were unconscious and the fifth person was semi-conscious and somewhat incoherent. All were believed to be breathing.

All five victims were transported by ambulance to local hospitals. Three people were taken to Florida Hospital Fish Memorial in Orange City and two people were taken to Central Florida Regional Hospital in Sanford.

According to the sheriff’s office, as of Monday afternoon, one of the males who is at Florida Hospital Fish Memorial is in critical condition and the other four persons are awake and in stable condition.

Based on preliminary information gathered by the sheriff’s office, it appears that the five people had been partying at a club in Orlando and had consumed alcohol and unknown drugs. At some point, the group relocated to the residence on Coleman Avenue.

Deputies do not know if the two females who live at the residence previously knew the other three victims or if they met them Sunday night while partying in Orlando.
