School Teens Ate Raw Hearts

A 16-year-old girl almost died after catching the lethal E.coli bug when she was forced to eat raw animals' hearts during a macabre initiation ceremony for a trendy high school sorority, police in Drammen, Norway, have revealed.

The youngster - desperate to join up to the exclusive society - ate uncooked offal and raw fish washed down with water laced with chewing tobacco.

For a final test, senior students from the Gevjon sorority watched the girls slap each other repeatedly around the face as shocked parents looked on.

But just hours after the ritual, the teenager collapsed in agony and was rushed to hospital.

Medics believed she had been struck down by the potentially deadly E.coli bacteria and placed a round the clock watch on her.

Her furious father told local media: "The police knew what was happening, and with that in mind I’m strongly critical of them allowing the event."

The youngster - who is now out of danger - had been trying to join the exclusive Gevjon sorority at Norway's posh Drammen Videregaende school.

Headmistress Ellen Kathrine Winstrup admitted: "Until recently the girls would get involved in some tomfoolery such as dressing up, having entertainment in the schoolyard, and occasionally some girl made a fool of herself, but it was not dangerous."

"In recent years we have seen the introduction of aspects we absolutely do not like," she added.
