13-year-old suffers apparent fentanyl overdose at Connecticut school, campus locked down

Three Connecticut seventh graders were hospitalized after apparent exposure fentanyl at a Connecticut middle school on Thursday, with a 13-year-old boy in "grave condition" due to an overdose, officials said.

Drug Enforcement Agency agents, state police and Hartford police scoured Sport and Medical Sciences Academy in Hartford after it was locked down, officials said, and drug-sniffing dogs found multiple bags containing what an initial analysis said was fentanyl.

The 13-year-old victim collapsed in a gymnasium, but the drug was apparently taken elsewhere on campus.

"It is believed that the student ingested something in the classroom," Hartford Public Schools Superintendent Leslie Torres-Rodriguez told reporters.

It wasn't immediately clear if the school would be in session on Friday.

More hysteria about people being "poisoned" by being near the stuff. You can't be.
