Two teenagers went to the hospital after what police call a "pill party" in Lawrence County, Ohio overnight. Now, a mother may face charges.

One boy -- just 13 years old -- had to be life-flighted to the emergency room. Some neighbors thought he was dead. Police feared the worst, but they say the boy is now improving.

Detectives say the pill party involved up to eight kids, all around 13 or 14 years old. That's the prime age for dangerous drug experimentation.

Some neighbors say at 3 Tuesday morning, there was teenage hollering and fighting all around a trailer just outside Ironton.

At 6am, sheriff's deputies say a 13-year-old boy was life-flighted to the hospital and a 13-year-old girl rushed to another emergency room. Police say he took 12 and she took 6 prescription panic disorder pills.
Police say the pills belong to the owner of the trailer and the supervising parent. Police are pursuing charges.
