SOUTH COUNTY, Calif. — Two months after an 8-year-old girl from South County ingested a “rainbow-colored” hallucinogenic drug to combat pain, she has since been arrested and is now facing child endangerment charges, authorities said.
Eight-year-old Lylo “Nico” Browning allegedly ingested the drug Monday morning just before school in her school trailer in South County, where she went to get her math homework.
Police said they were called to the area after the girl told her mother she had a stomach ache and was taking a pain reliever.
Officers found the girl suffering from a “moderate overdose of an unknown drug” at the school trailer, according to the San Jose Police Department.
The girl told authorities she had taken the illegal drug K-2 and used it to relieve her post-surgery pain, authorities said.
The girl was taken to a hospital for a second round of treatment and to be tested for opiate abuse and for cocaine and heroin abuse, a police spokesman said.
Both tests came back negative, according to police.
A second girl with the same name and the same address – in the same school trailer – took the drug Saturday night and it was confirmed, authorities said.
That girl was taken to the hospital for a second round of treatment, according to police.
