6 students taken to hospital after drinking tainted water

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Six Fern Creek Traditional High School students were taken to the hospital after drinking water tainted with prescription medication.

Jefferson County Public School spokesman Ben Jackey said the six students drank from a water bottle a student had put an ADHD pill in on Thursday.

Jackey said none of the students were in distress, but they were transported to an area hospital as a precaution after their parents were notified.

All six of the students have since been released.

Jackey said the student who put the pill into the water bottle will face disciplinary action.
