Fumes Sicken Many At Disney World Pool

Compiled From Wire Services

Noxious fumes from pool chemicals sent more than two dozen people at a Disney World resort to the hospital with nausea, coughing and breathing trouble.

They were sickened when an employee added the wrong chemical to a holding tank at the Wilderness Lodge pool.

A total of 29 people, including six employees, got sick, a spokesman said. Twenty-six were taken to the hospital; all were treated and released.
