Tampa students recovering after being sprayed with pepper spray
TAMPA, Fla. -- Dozens of students in the Tampa area are recovering after being sprayed with pepper spray at school.
Officials say a 12-year-girl unloaded a can of pepper spray in a busy hallway at McClane Middle School Friday.
About a hundred people were affected.
Three people were rushed to a local hospital with respiratory problems.
"It debilitates people. You get the burning eyes and you can't do anything. So you can imagine a hall full of kids having that affect. That's not a prank, that's very serious stuff."
All the students who went to the hospital were treated and sent home.
The girl who sprayed the pepper spray is now facing charges.
