Hazardous Chemical Spill Forces Evacuation of 500 from Denver Area Hospital

About 500 people, including 90 children, have been evacuated from a hospital campus in Denver, CO, this morning, following an accident involving hazardous chemicals.

A spokesperson from National Jewish Health said that most people evacuated were staff. Approximately 35 people were hospitalized to treat respiratory problems and nausea.

Reportedly, chlorine and hydrochloric acid were either spilled or mixed together during maintenance work at a swimming pool on the hospital campus.

According to the reports, the main hospital was affected.
