More Than A Dozen Sick Students At A Willowbrook Elementary School

Posted: Updated:

Paramedics were called to Ritter Elementary school at around 12:30 Friday afternoon after twenty students complained of having upset stomachs, nausea and chills.

Two students were transported to a local hospital and the others were picked up by parents. Officials don't know what caused the sickness.  Battalion Chief, Michael Brown says "The symptoms looked like food poisoning and most of the kids were smiling by the time we left."

An investigation is underway into what caused the students to get sick. The school is testing the lunch and the fire department ruled out a possible gas leak but says everything is being taken under consideration and is being investigated.
