Elementary school children in Philadelphia allegedly ingested birth control pills. According to a video report by GeoBeats, police are investigating after students were seen with "tablets" believed to be birth control. EMTs were called to the school after being told that some students may have swallowed the pills and were possibly ill.
Apparently an undisclosed number of students either swallowed or tasted the pills. The children did not need further medical attention after consuming the pills but Children's Hospital was contacted as a precaution.
One student brought the medication into school to show off to his or her friends. Authorities believe that the kids thought that the pills were candy hence why they tasted them. Parents were notified but everyone is expected to be okay. It is unclear if an disciplinary action will be taken against the student who brought the pills to school but it sounds like an honest mistake.
