AT LEAST three people were injured Saturday when an illegal spring break party in California prompted an overwhelming number of 911 calls.
Deltopia, an unsanctioned beach party attended by UC Santa Barbara students, returned to Isla Vista this weekend after two years of Covid restrictions.
An incident involving multiple victims was reported Saturday afternoon when 911 calls flooded the system.
“SBC Fire has declared an MCI (Multi-Casualty Incident) related to multiple medical emergencies, including multiple severe traumas,” the Santa Barbara Fire Department’s public information officer tweeted.
“These are associated with large crowds on Isla Vista for the unauthorized beach party called Deltopia.
“Many balconies are crowded.”
Several medical emergencies have been reported in the Isla Vista neighborhood.
Local news agency in Santa Barbara Noozhawk claims a woman even fell off the roof at a party venue.
The outlet also reports that other medical issues ranged from broken bones to possible overdoses with alcohol, drugs, or a combination of both.
As of April 1, three arrests were made and 20 subpoenas issued, according to Raquel Zick, public information officer for the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department.
Zick also told multiple media outlets that seven reports and one traffic accident were recorded.
The party seemed to escalate on April 2, however, when Zick said first responders switched to a medical emergency triage system around 3:30 p.m. due to an overwhelming number of calls.
