Three teens overdose, 5 younger children left unattended

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – Sioux Falls police say three teenage girls are hospitalized in a drug overdose case after one of the five younger children at the home called for help.

Authorities say the teens, ages 15, 18 and 19, were found unconscious at the home Wednesday night after a 12-year-old child placed the call for help. Police spokesman Sam Clemens says the oldest teen was babysitting the 12-year-old and four younger children.

Clemens did not know the conditions of the girls who are hospitalized or what type of drug they took. He says charges are likely once the investigation is complete.
