BRUSSELS — Two girls allegedly tried to poison their hairdressing teacher at a technical school in Charleroi.
After being punished by the teacher for misbehaving, the girls are alleged to have offered the teacher a cup of coffee.
However, a large dose of the powerful painkiller drug Contramal had been dissolved in the drink.
The woman thought it was a strange gesture to be offered the drink, but accepted it anyway and took a sip from it.
However, the woman became immediately unwell and a colleague rushed her to the hospital.
The teacher was forced to take two weeks sick leave, Flemish broadcaster VRT reported on Monday.
The students, aged 15 and 17, have already appeared before a Children's Court judge.
