Three Hospitalized After Cottonwood Heights Party

COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS (AP) - Police in Cottonwood Heights say they've issued a dozen citations at a party where people had taken the so-called "date rape" drug.

Officer Brian Eschtruth says police responded to a disturbance around 7 a.m. Sunday at an apartment complex on South Highland Drive. 

They found one unconscious 20 year old man next to a swimming pool and another unconscious 23 year old man who was sliding into the pool. One officer pulled him out of the water. Authorities also found a 19 year old woman passed out on a couch inside an apartment. 

Eschtruth tells KSL-TV the three victims were transported to Intermountain Medical Center in critical condition.

He says some of the individuals cited were minor who had been consuming drugs and alcohol throughout the night.
