Florida Students Overdose

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) _ Five students from Panama City's Arnold
High School were taken to area hospitals after ingesting the
antidepressant Elavil.

Authorities described the students as ``like zombies'' and said
some ingested as many as seven pills. The problem was discovered
today after a student left a classroom to go to the restroom and
returned to the wrong room.

The Bay County Sheriff's office says criminal charges may be
pending against the person who brought the drug to the school.

Four of the students were released from the hospital tonight.
Authorities did not release the students' names because they are
minors.

The school district has a zero-tolerance drug policy and the
students may be disciplined.
