A boy shared a stash of ecstasy pills with a group of friends from his school after confusing his father's drugs with candy.
The 8-year-old boy shared the pills with four of his friends, ages 7 to 9, at an elementary school in the Indonesian province of Riau on Monday.
The ecstasy pills supposedly belonged to the father of the 8-year-old boy, identified as a 46-year-old man with the initials HR.
An eight-year-old boy shared his father's ecstasy pills with his friends at school, accidentally mistaking the stash for candy.
Police said HR's two-year-old boy had found the stash in his car that he had given to his older brother.
"The children thought that the green pills in their parents' cars were sweet, they cut the pills and shared them with friends," Riau police public relations chief Kombes Sunarto told the media, according to Detik News .
The 8-year-old boy and his friends from school complained of headaches and dizziness after swallowing the drugs and were taken to the hospital, except the 2-year-old boy who was discouraged by the bitterness of the taste.
& # 39; They feel better now. They have received treatment, "said Sunarto.
HR confessed that he had the ecstasy hidden and was soon arrested by the police.
Police have not mentioned whether HR will face additional charges.
Four school children, between 7 and 9 years old, were hospitalized after complaints of headaches and dizziness.
