ROSEVILLE, Mich. – Police said a pre-school student in Michigan found a Xanax pill inside a plastic Easter egg at a school party.
The Macomb Daily News reported that it happened to a 4-year-old girl during an Easter egg hunt at Huron Park Elementary School in Roseville on Wednesday.
Instead of candy, this egg had a single dose of Alprazolam, a generic form of Xanax, used to treat anxiety and panic disorders. Possible side effects include tiredness, seizure and confusion.
“The little girl was opening the eggs and the pill just fell out onto the floor,” said Deputy Chief Donald Glandon, according to the paper.
The girl’s mother said she was by her child’s side when she found the pill. The mother then called the principal.
Officials said this is the only incident of its kind and the pill has been turned over to police. The investigation is ongoing.
