Dozens of Wheaton students sent to hospital

WheatonTwo dozen students were rushed to the hospital from a middle school in Wheaton.

A school spokesman blames two simultaneous accidents.

A power outage at Edison Middle School caused an air conditioner to give off a burning odor that triggered headaches and light-headedness.

Paramedics took 25 students to Central DuPage Hospital.

Another five were treated at the school and released to their parents.

The school re-admitted students at 1:20.
