Intoxicating mushrooms send two students to hospital
(New London-WTNH, Dec. 3, 2004 5:00 PM) _ Apparently a very bad trip landed two Mitchell College students in the hospital.
State police say the students at the New London college had taken intoxicating mushrooms before their trouble started.
According to other students at Mitchell college and police these two students were apparently on something and their high reached some real lows as the night went on.
"Your suite isn't ready yet but somebody was waiting for you..."
This scene from the movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas may be like the mind altering trip two Mitchell College students wanted but what they got was a lot more dangerous.
Christine Tirado, freshman, says,"About two or three cop cars and they were just asking students questions."
Christine Tirado lives in the dorm where police say one of the students assaulted a campus safety officer.
David Heald, sophomore, says,"I guess it was like mayhem here last night. He was kicking, hitting everyone. It was kind of scary."
State police say the student had taken some sort of intoxicating mushrooms. New London police say there is no evidence of exactly what he was on.
Eric Fass, freshman, says,"He was thinking that everyone was his girlfriend. That's how bad it was and he was going around just trying to take off everyone's clothes."
State police say that student later suffered cardiac arrest and was transported to the hospital. The second student apparently wandered away from his dorm and into these nearby woods.
Police says there are between five and six acres of woods behind Mitchell College and it took a state police blood hound to track that student down.
He was also brought to the hospital. The school released this statement saying Mitchell College will not discuss pending investigations, and certainly will not discuss medical issues regarding our students for privacy reasons.
David Heald, sophomore, says,"I think students and kids do drugs for the fact they want to try new things and experiment but they don't realize the seriousness of it."
Fass says,"I mean I guess they should learn their lesson sooner or later but I guess they have to learn it the bad way."
Police are not releasing the names of the students because at this point noone has been arrested.
