Students sharing prescription drugs hospitalized

CALDWELL, Idaho (AP) — Five southwest Idaho students became ill and two had to be transported by ambulance to a hospital after a student shared prescription medication.

Caldwell School District Superintendent Tim Rosandick says the students at Caldwell Freshman Academy became ill Tuesday morning after one of them brought the medication to school.

He says the three students not hospitalized were picked up by parents.

It's unclear what type of medication was shared.

Names and conditions of the students haven't been released.
