LINWOOD, N.J. (AP) — A reaction involving pool chemicals at a southern New Jersey high school sent more than two dozen students to a hospital Friday, but no one was seriously hurt.

The Press of Atlantic City reports that police blamed pool chemicals at Mainland Regional High School in Linwood for causing noxious fumes, leading to the evacuation of the school. It was ventilated, and after-school activities were to be held as usual.

About 28 students were taken to a hospital complaining of nausea and headaches.

The school classified the incident as a “minor” chemical spill.
