Approximately 50 students from Buff Bay High School in Portland had to seek emergency medical aid yesterday after suffering from a mysterious illness, which last night continued to baffle personnel at the town's health clinic.

Up until late yesterday afternoon, at least 20 of the approximately 50 ill students, many of whom were suffering from fainting spells and showed signs of hysteria, were still being treated at the Buff Bay Health Clinic by a team of Cuban doctors.

"Even now, my granddaughter has not spoken," said Naomi Fagan, grandmother of Samantha Cann, who was among the students rushed to the clinic. "She is unable to walk and had to be assisted by a porter, who whisked her away in a wheelchair. It is total confusion and we haven't been told what caused the dizziness and fainting spells."


Crazy stuff.

I looked around here for this and found nothing so if it is here my apologies.

This is quite a big deal. The fact this is happening to school children is a big deal and hopefully everything comes out okay when all is said and done.

If my child went to school and came home unable to speak or walk, well, all I can say is the better be doing their best to figure out what the hell is going on.

Any thoughts?

I'd say if it's a virus it's something that effects neurologically obviously, which would indeed be terrifying, the dizziness and fainting spells/hysteria almost sound like a biochem hazard though.

OMG! What the hell is going on there? Very strange indeed.

Wow...
Don't eat school lunch? Yeah...not likely a food origin. That would be more internal stomach/intestinal...
What kind of disease would be airborne and have those symptoms? Scary that so many of them caught it.

Maybe experimenting with drugs?

Symptoms of speed or something similar.

Then again maybe it's just a reaction to some aerial chemical spraying that has recently taken place...

Well, it was a high school...maybe they all huffed something that messed them up.

I remember those days. Just sayin'.

P.S. No. I never did that, but I know people who did. It would mess them up good.

Well, there's your problem right there! Cuban doctors in Portand? Anyone else scratching their heads at that one?

EDIT: Nevermind, this is in Jamaica. Why is this news? Those Caribbean kids are always doing goofy stuff.

Wow...now that is some scary stuff. Sounds like a virus or some type of parasite causing encephalitis (from the water possibly)???


Keep us posted!!

Sounds like Carbon Monoxide poisoning to me

www.emedicinehealth.com... Monoxide Poisoning Symptoms

The symptoms certainly seem to fit the description of what happened...was there not enough ventilation and some kind of leak from an old heating system or tank or something.

A very scary time for the parents...I hope they get to the bottom of this!

Peace

I was making a joke because I thought it was Portland, Oregon, USA, and I thought it was strange that they'd being worked on by doctors from Cuba.

After clicking the link I realized my mistake. It wasn't racist, it was a geographic distance joke, joke being what silly outfit would fly in doctors from 5000 miles away when they have local doctors who could do the job?

so not they are trying to say it is because they are just to crowded and 119 was called by a prankster or they would not even have been taken to the clinic!

Still not a very funny joke. Sorry.

Back on topic..
I still think it sounds like they huffed, or something was released in the air.
edit on 22-9-2011 by Ventessa because: bad grammar... oopsies!

This reminds me of a bioweapon I read about within the past year (sorry for no links) created by the American government. They said it "zombified" a population in order to passify a population. Any fans of Firefly will recall the episode "Trash" featured a noble that was involved with a program in which they would use a similar weapon in order to loot the town freely.
