A Kansas student is accused of putting urine in a school ice machine. To make matters worse, officials at Winfield High School say students from other schools also may have been exposed.
School officials say Wednesday, April 30 a senior boy poured a cup of urine into an ice machine. The next day, Winfield hosted a tennis tournament and used ice from the machine.
Other students who saw the 18-year-old turned him in and the boy confessed.
Health officials say the urine is fairly sterile and there is little reason to worry about those who ate the ice getting sick.
Winfield's superintendent, Marvin Estes, said all seven schools that attended the tennis tournament have been notified about what happened.
The student told school officials it was a prank. "He wasn't angry with anyone, he just did it," said Estes.
School officials are still deciding what punishment the student will face.
They also say letters will go home to all parents to explain what happened.
