Police: 6 toddlers overdose on PCP in Yonkers

Yonkers police say they're investigating after six young children overdosed on the powerful drug PCP, also known as angel dust.

Police say they arrived at the scene at Van Cortlandt Park Avenue last night after receiving a report of a sick child. Investigators say they found six sick children at the house, and all of them were under the age of five.

Officials say all of the children were rushed to St. John's Hospital. They say one of the kids nearly died.

Neighbors say they believe at least one parent was home at the time. It is unclear if all the children are related.

Authorities say the incident remains under investigation and no arrests have been made.
