Twenty-five students were sent to area hospitals after a carbon monoxide leak at a South Side elementary school. A problem with the boiler at Harold Washington School at 9130 S. University Ave. created elevated carbon monoxide levels in the school's air, causing students to experience headaches and nausea. The Chicago Fire Department put its Emergency Medical Services Plan 1 into effect, evacuating the school. Some students were sent to hospitals for evaluation as a precaution.
