Mexico City –

Fifteen elementary school children in Mexico received treatment after participating in a “challenge” conducted on the Internet.

The incident occurred Monday in the north-central city of Guanajuato. It came days after health officials issued a nationwide alert about the epidemic. Last year, it was her fourth school in Mexico to suffer such an incident.

Guanajuato Mayor Alejandro Navarro said the students received treatment at school and urged parents to supervise their children’s use of social media.

“In principle, neither girls nor boys should have social media accounts. It’s bad in the first place.” Navarro wrote on his Facebook account.

There was no immediate information about the condition of the students, believed to be fifth and sixth graders, or where they obtained their tranquilizers.

The Ministry of Health issued a warning on January 25 about the dangers of the tranquilizer clonazepam and called on the public to report shops selling clonazepam without a prescription.

The warning came a week after eight students at a middle school in Mexico City received treatment after taking “controlled drugs.” Some have been hospitalized. A few days ago, three of her students at another middle school near the northern city of Monterrey were treated with clonazepam.

The ministry has warned of the dangers of a social media challenge dubbed ‘the last to fall asleep wins’.
