A 16-year-old boy is in intensive care after taking what could have been a deadly kombat ecstasy pill, police said.
Tests are also being carried out on a 17-year-old boy after the two fell ill following a house party in Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire yesterday.
The 16-year-old is said to be in serious but stable condition.
The couple went to Monklands District General Hospital in Airdrie around 11:30 p.m. after apparently taking illegal drugs.
Scottish police said they believed the drugs included ecstasy and “possibly” a mortal kombat pill.

The warnings issued about the red pills following the death of 17-year-old Regane MacColl last month have been renewed.
Miss MacColl, from Clydebank in West Dunbartonshire, died after taking one of the tablets at Glasgow nightclub The Arches on February 1.
A spokeswoman for NHS Lanarkshire said: “Anyone who has taken ecstasy – especially one described as a deadly kombat, and who does not feel well, or who knows someone who has taken this type of drug in the last few hours, should attend or contact their local hospital for treatment and advice. “
Detective Inspector Debbie Johnstone of the Coatbridge CID said: “Illegal drugs are dangerous. Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111 where details can be given in confidence. “
