An East Harlem student spiked his teacher's water with calcium hydroxide -- sending the teacher to the hospital. Dru D'Amico was reportedly poisoned inside the Talented and Gifted School for Young Scholars on East 109th Street.

She was treated for several hours at Metropolitan Hospital before being released.

Officials say she was poisoned by a male junior high school student, who spiked her bottled water with calcium hydroxide yesterday afternoon.

The student will be suspended form the school. Police say he was not immediately charged.
