Two Brookville students needed medical attention after taking high dose of Benadryl

Brookville – Two Brookville Junior-Senior High School students needed medical attention earlier this month after intentionally taking a very high dose of Benadryl.

On Thursday, Brookville Police say both juveniles have been charged with disorderly conduct.

An investigation revealed that after both students took the medications on school property, they started experiencing symptoms of overdosing and hallucinations.

One of the juveniles required a life flight to Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh for treatment while the other was reportedly taken by a parent to be treated at a nearby hospital.

The Brookville School District and the Brookville Police released a public statement that this type of activity will not be tolerated.
