Spring Break chaos as at least 3 hurt at illegal beach party & arrests made

AT LEAST three people were injured on Saturday as an illegal Spring Break party in California resulted in an overwhelming number of 911 calls.

Deltopia, an unsanctioned beach party attended by students from the University of California Santa Barbara, returned to Isla Vista this weekend after two years of Covid restrictions.

Pictures from the scene showed overloaded balconies and packed streets as members of the fire department could be seen among the crowd.

A multi-casualty incident was declared on Saturday afternoon as 911 calls flooded the system.

Santa Barbara County confirmed that at least three people suffered significant injuries after falls at the unsanctioned event.

“SBC Fire has declared an MCI (multi-casualty incident) associated with multiple medical emergencies including multiple severe traumas,” according to a tweet from the Santa Barbara Fire Department Public Information Officer.

“These are associated with heavy crowds in Isla Vista for the unsanctioned beach party known as Deltopia.

“Many balconies are overcrowded.”

The multi-casualty alert was dropped later in the afternoon as calls for medical emergencies “dropped to reasonable levels.”

“By declaring an MCI, first responders and the hospitals are able to triage and transport multiple patients to different hospitals more efficiently,” Daniel Bertucelli, SBCFD spokesperson, said.

“Will update if more info becomes available.”

Saturday’s chaos came after three arrests, 20 citations, seven reports, and one traffic collision linked with the party on Friday night.

Officials said that official arrest and citation numbers would be updated on Sunday.

However, it was expected that Saturday would see more disruption as services were inundated with medical calls.

Deltopia takes place from Friday through Sunday.

The annual event attracts thousands of students.

It had originally evolved from the Floatopia party, according to Daily Mail.

That beach party has been banned since 2009, however, as it was deemed an environmental and safety hazard.

Efforts have been made to ramp up safety at the party after a Cal Poly San Luis Obispo student tragically fell to her death off the cliffs in 2008.

Several partygoers were also previously injured in a balcony collapse.

And in 2014 the party ended in a riot, according to Fox News.
