In the southern Mexican state of Chiapas, as many as 57 students were poisoned by an unidentified substance in a rural secondary school, local authorities said, reported Reuters. After the incident, reports emerged on social media that students had tested positive for cocaine at a private laboratory.
However, the parents of the students suspect that their children may have died as they were exposed to contaminated food or water. The condition of one student remains critical and the others are stable.
This is the third such incident of mass poisoning at Chiapas schools over the past two weeks, local media reports suggest.
