Boys hospitalised after allegedly taking ice

Two young boys have been hospitalised after an incident at Lake Haven yesterday, where it is believed they were under the influence of "ice". 

At around midday yesterday, (Sunday 24 July 2016) two boys, aged 10 and 11, were taken to Wyong Hospital suffering what is believed to be the effects of an illicit drug, after being located by a witness near a skate park at Lake Haven.

It has now been reported that the boys admitted to hospital staff that they had smoked cannabis after finding it at one of their homes.

After undergoing drug testing and detecting traces of ice in their system, it has been reported that staff came to the conclusion that the cannabis was laced with ice.

They were treated for hallucinations before being discharged.

Officers attached to Tuggerah Lakes Local Area Command are investigating the incident.

Police urge young people to be aware of dangers of using illicit drugs and the harm they can do.

Liaison officers work closely with schools throughout the state to educate young people that all drugs are dangerous; you never know how the drugs will affect you and there is never a guarantee as to what you are taking.
