Pupils sick after 'ammonia' smell in playground

Ten patients have been taken to hospital after falling ill at a Wairarapa primary school this afternoon, a Wellington Free Ambulance spokesperson says.

Pupils at a South End school in Carterton will need to be decontaminated after a mystery substance was dropped by a plane near the school grounds.

The school has been in lockdown since 3pm after a plane nearby dropped an unknown substance, causing multiple children to feel ill.

An earlier post on social media by the school says one student saw a plane, with 'stuff' coming out, which teachers have assumed to be fertiliser.

The decontamination process has started, with all 107 pupils and staff leaving the school grounds needing to be washed down before they can leave.
