Dozen Students Hospitalized After Coming Down With Rash In Class

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) — Twelve students and two teachers at a South Florida high school have been transported to area hospitals after coming down with a rash while in class.

Broward County Public Schools officials say the students were all in the same classroom at McArthur High School in Hollywood on Wednesday morning when they started complaining about an itching rash.

Paramedics were called to the school and the students and two teachers were being decontaminated and sent to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood for examination.

District spokeswoman Nadine Drew says the school is on lockdown and the building where the classroom is located has been evacuated. Students are being relocated to the gym as authorities continue to investigate the cause.
