Two Sunnyside High students reportedly overdose

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

An investigation is underway tonight after two students from Sunnyside High School reportedly overdosed.

We're told the two students ended up in the nurses office and then were taken to a local hospital. The school is keeping tight lipped about what the kids were on. Tucson Fire confirmed they did get a call of an overdose at the school.

Paramedics got the call just before 2 p.m. on Thursday. We know very little at this point, such as whether the two teens are still in the hospital or their condition.

We talked to students who said they saw an ambulance but didn't know what was going on. Parents we spoke to were saddened and surprised to hear the news.

"I just hope people have the open communication with their children and able to talk to their kids. Everyone has a lot of stuff going on. But, if you can talk to your kids about drugs and other things going on in life. I think it'll be a big help," said parent, Annette Martinez.

A school resource officer with the Tucson Police Department was here all day but unavailable for a comment. The school district said it will be looking into this matter. We will continue to dig and bring you any new developments on this story.
