P.S. 385 officials: 15 students pricked with needle
The principal of P.S. 385 says a student pricked as many as 15 others with hypodermic needles at the school Friday.
The principal says the incident occurred during recess at around 1 p.m. EMS and police were called immediately after the third-grade students were pricked.
According to the principal, one of the students found a package of syringes near the Park Avenue subway station and used one or more of them to prick other students.
EMS officials say none of the students are sick. However, doctors urge parents to take their children to an emergency room immediately if they were pricked.
