Officials at Atlanta’s Finch Elementary started evacuating students and staff after noticing people becoming ill. It would later be determined to be carbon monoxide. But Dr. Naghma Kahn at Hughes Spalding Children’s Hospital says most everyone is fine.

(Kahn) “We had one child who was having an anxiety attack by the time they got on the bus. I think it was all the hullabaloo going around that caused that to happen. But for the most part the kids have been troopers.”

Forty-two students and five adults were evaluated and treated. Nobody is said to be in serious condition.
