Chlorine Leak Shuts Down St Louis Park High School

Comments Off

On Friday, October 29, a chlorine gas leak in a pool injured 2 students. A power failure caused chlorine vapors to spread from the pool area throughout the school. The Hopkins Hazardous Materials Team and other emergency personnel responded to the situation.

The St. Louis Park Senior High School is closed to students in Grades 9-12 today

From the school Website:

A failed generator caused the ventilation system to not work properly and emergency personnel were called to the school to address concerns about chlorine vapors in the pool area. Two students were taken to a nearly hospital for observation and later released. Other students were sheltered in place until they were picked-up by parents

Gas exposure can damage the eyes, skin, throat or lungs. If it should happen to you or your family immediate medical attention should be sought.
