10 middle school students in San Francisco treated after exposure to unknown substance
Multiple ambulances have been scrambled in San Francisco to treat 10 middle school students after they were exposed to an unknown substance, city emergency officials confirm, as cited by local media.
“At this time it appears as though some students have ingested a substance that is causing adverse reactions. Those students who have been identified as being affected are receiving medical care and their families are being contacted,” the San Francisco branch of CBS said, quoting an email sent to parents by the James Lick Middle School.
The incident triggered a city-wide red alert, which means all available ambulances have been scrambled to the location. All the affected students have been taken to local hospitals and are in non-life-threatening condition.
