PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Authorities say a man and a woman are facing charges after a first-grader took 11 packets of heroin to a Philadelphia school.

School officials say 20 students at Barry Elementary School in the city's Cobbs Creek section were taken to a hospital after a teacher saw a 6-year-old girl playing with one of the packets.

No injuries were reported, although police say one of the packets appeared to have been bitten and a girl was complaining of stomach pains.

Police and prosecutors said Wednesday that 28-year-old Christopher Troy-Jenkins White and 32-year-old Marie Hunter are charged with endangerment and narcotics possession.

Listed phone numbers for White and Hunter can't be found. It's unclear whether they have attorneys.
