Dozens Sickened at Georgia School

Forty-two students and seven teachers were hospitalized Monday after potentially lethal levels of carbon-monoxide poisoning were found at an Atlanta elementary school. Five hundred were evacuated, authorities said, as young children with oxygen masks strapped to their faces were led off on gurneys. The school reportedly did not have carbon-monoxide detectors—which are not required by Georgia law—and firefighters said they found deadly levels of carbon monoxide near a furnace at the school. Superintendent Erroll Davis said the school is investigating the cause of the leak.
