No toxic substance found in CNorte school, says PNP

DAET, Camarines Norte—The crime scene investigation unit of the Basud police found no evidence of any toxic substance near the vicinity of the classrooms where 50 students of San Felipe Elementary School were rushed to a hospital after inhaling reportedly toxic fumes.

Police Provincial Director Senior Supt. Harris Fama

Police Provincial Director Senior Supt. Harris Fama in a special report furnished to BICOL STANDARD said the ocular inspection was conducted at the mini garden at the back of the school from which some students and teachers indicated the smell emanated.

Fama said there was no evidence of toxic substances inside the school campus and nearby campuses and residences, as well.

Meanwhile, according to the initial findings from the Camarines Norte Provincial Hospital, the victims suffered from toxic inhalation, but its cause remains unknown.

The victims are scheduled to undergo blood chemistry examination to determine the toxic substance they inhaled, Fama said.

It would be recalled that on the morning of June 17, at least 50 students complained of stomachaches, nausea, and vomiting due to an unknown substance.

They were rushed to Camarines Norte Provincial Hospital here for treatment.

It was earlier believed that the fumes were from expired medicine or fertilizer spread from a radius of some 50 meters behind the school building, the report noted.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM Pirming enot. Pirming bago.
