2 Va. High School Students Hospitalized for Drug Overdose

December 22, 2010

A D.C. fire official says two Virginia high school students have been taken to a hospital because of a recreational drug overdose.

D.C. Fire and EMS spokesman Pete Piringer says paramedics were called Tuesday morning to a report of a sick person near the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. He says they arrived to find several sick students.

Piringer says two were taken to a hospital in serious, but not life-threatening condition. He says the students were thought to have ingested a recreational drug, based on the evaluation of paramedics.

Piringer says a third student, who did not use drugs, also was taken to the hospital to be treated for flu-like symptoms. He says the students were from a high school in Stafford County, Va.
