Florida Student Overdoses

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) _ Five students from Panama City's Arnold High School were under observation at 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 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 last night. 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.
