A cop investigates the scene where the two men were found unconscious on 27th St. near Fourth Ave. in Greenwood early Sunday

A Brooklyn father and his son died after having apparent drug overdose while celebrating family birthday party on Saturday.

Police say Joseph Andrade, 44, and his son Carlos, 22, told family members they were stepping outside for a cigarette when in actuality they were going to snort a mix of heroin and fentanyl, an opioid 50 times stronger than morphine, the New York Post reports.

The men were rushed to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn in Sunset Park, where they pronounced dead at 4 a.m., police said.

Jasmin Santos, the 23-year-old mother of Carlos' 11-month-old and 4-year-old sons, grew anxious when the two men disappeared after going outside, and found Carlos just inside the building's doorway with his face turning purple, the New York Daily News reported.

Ms Santos, who is mother to Carlos' 11-month-old and 4-year-old children, "discovered Carlos biting the dust", a cousin, Sonia Santos, told the paper. Santos said, "She screamed and tried to help him".

His father was found unconscious a few feet away. For some unknown reasons Carlos, 22, who didn't know how to use drug joined Andrade, his father.

Specialists speculate they grunted a blend of heroin and fentanyl, police sources revealed to New York Post. "I don't know what they are going to do without him".

'The father had a problem, ' a neighbor said. "I'm so surprised because I know Carlos, and I never know that he used drugs or anything like that", Jasmine Santos' uncle Yovanny said. He was a good son'.

Their deaths are under investigation and a medical examiner will determine the cause.
