A Catholic school in Michigan, United States was evacuated today after several students became sick during a church service.
Bloomfield Hills Public Safety Director Rick Matott said St. Hugo of the Hills Catholic School evacuated its 860 students around 9 a.m. EDT today. At least three children had passed out during the church service. Two children reportedly had to be taken to area hospitals.
Medical crews and hazardous material experts responded to the school to determine the cause of the illness. However, it is still not known what caused the students to become sick.
Students walked to the nearby Oakland Community College campus while they waited for their parents to pick them up.
