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 reports three people were listed in stable condition at the hospital on Sunday and another was treated and released.
An investigation continues.
