Eighteen second year students of Mahasen Model Primary School in Padaviya who had eaten ‘Enderu’ seeds believing them to be lotus seeds have been admitted to the Padaviya Base Hospital.

The hospital spokesperson said that 15 of them have been transferred to the Anuradhapura teaching hospital.

Parents have been investigating the cause of these children vomiting in their homes last afternoon.

The students have shared that they ate ‘Enderu’ seeds brought by a student for a Maths assignment believing them to be lotus seeds.

A spokesperson for the Anuradhapura hospital said that their condition was not serious and out of danger.
