HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. - Seven Hedgesville High School students were taken to City Hospital near Martinsburg, W.Va., Wednesday after school officials believed the students took caffeine pills, said Principal Frank Aliveto.
After school officials discovered the students took the pills, ambulance personnel recommended that the students be taken to the hospital to determine what they had taken, Aliveto said.
"I don't think they knew what they took. That's the reason we sent them down there," said Aliveto.
The seven students, apparently all girls from the ninth and 10th grades, were treated and released from City Hospital, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
