A Manhattan teacher is pressing charges against a student who admitted to giving her tainted water.
An eighth grade student at the Talented and Gifted School for Young Scholars put calcium hydroxide into a teacher's water bottle on Wednesday. The substance is usually used to make mortar and cement.
Dru D'Amico was taken to Metropolitan Hospital for examination and was released later in the day.
Police say the 13-year-old student has been charged with reckless endangerment.
The student has also been suspended and faces a disciplinary hearing on October 2.
