A DRUG party where four people overdosed in western Sydney was held in a house while three young children were asleep, police said today.

Paramedics called police after they arrived at a home in Ropes Crossing, near Mount Druitt about 4am this morning, where they treated two men and two women for suspected drug overdoses.

"Three young children, all aged under 10 were at the home at the time but seem to have slept through the incident and were not injured,'' a police spokesman said.

"They were taken from the scene and put in the care of relative and the appropriate government agencies have also been informed."

An occupant of the house rang triple-0 when they became concerned about the behaviour of a number of people at the residence who are suspected to have taken ecstasy.

Two men, aged 33 and 35, and two women, aged 28 and 32, were treated at the scene but did not need to be taken to hospital.

Police will investigate whether charges relating to drug possession and child neglect will be laid.
