Authorities in Houston are still searching for answers after an area high school football game was called off early after nearly two dozen fans were hospitalized after suddenly becoming sick in the stands of Barnett Stadium on Friday night.

During the second half of the game between Austin (Texas) High and Houston (Texas) Yates, many members of the band and dance team from Austin started suffering from nausea, vomiting and dizziness and began collapsing in the stands, according to numerous media reports.

Officials feared they had been exposed to some type of biohazard and called hazmet teams to the scene but no traces of gases or chemical agents were found.

Nevertheless, the stadium was cleared and the game was called with Yates leading, 47-14.

The students, many complaining of nausea, were sent for more medical evaluation.

"We ended up with 22 students being transported to five different hospitals," Houston Fire Department assistant chief David Almaguer told the local FOX affiliate, KTRK-TV.

Food poisoning of some sort remains a possibility for the incident, but initially appears unlikely as those who were sick ate different meals at different times in different places before the game.

"The kids all ate at different places, some of them ate at different times ... but they did have something in their stomachs," Emergency Medical Services doctor David Purse told the station. "At this point, it remains a little unclear what set it off."

Officials, however, aren't taking any chances. A football game scheduled to be played there on Saturday afternoon has been moved to another location.

How strange, you would think that maybe somebody had released something into the air around them, but if nothing was found, hmmm.

I t seems like some airborne sickness that is undetected by, average hazmat and medical personnel could be the possibility of this mysterious phenomenon?!!!! Look into it closer and maybe someone will surely find out what happened.!!!! :headscratch:

Maybe it's...

Corexit (often styled COREXIT) is a product line of solvents primarily used as a dispersant for breaking up oil slicks. It is produced by Nalco Holding Company which is associated with BP and Exxon. Corexit was the most-used dispersant in the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, with COREXIT 9527 having been replaced by COREXIT 9500 after the former was deemed too toxic. Oil that would normally rise to the surface of the water is broken up by the dispersant into small globules that can then remain suspended in the water.
