Two freshmen Haverhill High School students were treated Wednesday at a local hospital for apparent drug overdoses.
Police and Trinity EMS ambulance responded to a call for medical help at Haverhill High School, sources said. Haverhill School Superintendent James F. Scully told WHAV Wednesday night the situation is being treated by police as a medical issue.
“To the best of my knowledge some students apparently had some type of substance which could be possibly marijuana laced…it definitely was not anything to do with heroin,” Scully said. “Because it is a medical issue I have really no more knowledge of what really happened.”
Other, unconfirmed reports indicated students may have consumed Xanax pills.
This is a developing story.
