A Connecticut high school’s prom had to be cut short when several students were brought to the hospital because of what was described as an irritant similar to pepper spray in the air.
The Day reports (https://bit.ly/2Wo9CtQ) that Principal Mark Friese said in an email to parents Sunday morning that three students were taken by ambulance to the hospital where they were treated and released “and appeared fine when they went home.”
Sgt. David Miner says someone sprayed “some sort of airborne substance” similar to pepper spray.
Police were investigating and no one had been arrested.
