Students overdose on drug at school

HARRAH, Okla. - Police investigators in Harrah, Okla. say seven students are involved in an overdose situation that happened at Harrah Junior High, east of Oklahoma City.

Officials say the students ingested Diazepam, a generic Valium taken to relieve anxiety.

"They started passing out and several of them were tired and other things, but other than that, they were just acting different than normal," a student said.

A teacher immediately called authorities after seeing a student pass out.  Officers say one of the seven kids faces charges for distributing the drug.
