ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Orange County Sheriff's deputies say one teen died and four others were sent to the hospital after overdosing.

According to reports, a 17-year-old died at the hospital shortly after paramedics were called to a home near Orlando early Sunday.

Paramedics found the victims - in their teens and early 20s - unconscious inside the home in the Four Corners area just before 4 a.m. Orlando television station WESH (http://bit.ly/1267qVp ) reports three people were listed in stable condition at the hospital on Sunday and another was treated and released. An investigation continues.
