Several students and a teacher of the Mona High School in St Andrew were yesterday rushed to the University Hospital of the West Indies following an explosion, reportedly from an experiment that had gone terribly wrong.

The students, along with one teacher, were subsequently assisted to the hospital for medical treatment.

Up to press time, the condition of the students and the teacher was unknown.

Efforts to reach Mona High School principal Kevin Jones were unsuccessful.
