NO-one knows exactly what caused eleven people, mainly teenage girls to faint and become sick during a mass at a Sydney church early today. Ambulance officers were called to Our Lady of Dolours Church on Archer St, Chatswood at 9.45 to treat a young girl who had fainted but when they arrived they found a number of people in a distressed state. Most were suffering dizziness, nausea, and having trouble breathing. "The initial call was for one patient but when the officers attended the church a lot more people were reporting similar symptoms," an ambulance spokeswoman said. "We treated eleven people at the scene including some adults and five had to be taken to Royal North Shore Hospital."
