One student was taken to the hospital with the bus driver along with 40 students, who were given medical care at a Perry County school after pepper spray was dispersed by a child. Nurse Yvonne Spears characterized all of the injuries as minor; one child was taken to the local emergency room by their parents to be evaluated. Spears says that six children experienced either respiratory issues or itching following the incident. None of the students or driver were directly sprayed with the pepper spray. Superintendent Andrew Comstock says this was a case of a curious child who had no malicious intent.
