Cypress, Texas – Last week, some 7th grade students at a Houston-area middle school became ill after eating cupcakes brought in at their child’s birthday party, parents said.
One student was reportedly rushed to Houston-area emergency care after a party.
Isaac Hernandez, the father of one of Cypress’s Spillane Middle School students, said his family was very worried after his 12-year-old daughter fell ill, according to KPRC, a sister station of KSAT in Houston. said there is.
“I was surprised at first [at] I had never seen her like that before, so how was she reacting,” Hernandez told KPRC in an interview.
Hernandez was called by the school nurse to pick up her daughter on Thursday after she fell ill. She told her family that the cupcakes were handed out by a student acquaintance of hers.
Other students also ate the cupcakes and reported feeling sick after a while and went to see a nurse, KPRC said.
Hernandez’s daughter texted that she felt dizzy and passed out while waiting for her father to pick her up.
When her father arrived, he said he knew something was wrong.
“I look at her and she’s in the back of my eye. She’s high like a kite,” Hernandez told KPRC.
Hernandez took her daughter to Texas Children’s Urgent Care to make sure she wasn’t in danger when she was tested.
She also underwent another medical test at home and was instructed to return to urgent care the next day for the results.
That’s when the reason for the illness became clear: the cupcakes may have been laced with THC, according to the KPRC.
Hernandez said his family was outraged and called for an investigation into the incident by the school.
The school district told KPRC that the incident was “under investigation” but did not provide further details.
