Two students were taken to hospital following a substance-related emergency at NUI Galway last evening.
The alarm was raised about the condition of the two male students in their early twenties, and emergency services were called to Corrib Village.
The students required medical care at the scene before being taken to UHG as a precaution – one of the young men remains in hospital today, but his condition is not believed to be life threatening.
In a statement on social media, NUI Galway says the University activated its emergency response protocol and emergency services came to the support of the students, who are now under medical care.
They’re reminding students to stay safe and mind each other, and if anyone is aware of someone who may have taken a substance and had a bad reaction, they should contact the emergency services immediately.
