Cropduster Accidentally Sprays Teen Detasslers Near Champaign


More than 75 kids who were detassling corn near Champaign have been checked out just as a precaution… but officials say there were no serious injuries after a crop duster accidentally sprayed the workers with a fungicide. 

 

The kids were working in the field when the plane came overhead.  The workers reported feeling droplets on their skin.  Several of the teens complained of nausea or skin irritation afterwards.  All of the workers were hosed off and then taken to the hospital for a brief medical evaluation.
