School soup: two dead, 41 sick
Two children died and 41 people were hospitalised in the Philippines after a teacher allegedly served a soup laced with a deadly chemical, a police official said yesterday.
The teacher had prepared a noodle soup for students and fellow teachers in the city of Tuguegarao but shortly after the meal was served students and teachers suffered dizziness and vomiting.
The stricken students and three teachers were rushed to a hospital but two five-year-old girls died while being treated.
Investigators suspect that oxalic acid, a chemical used for cleaning marble, was accidentally mixed into the soup, said the police chief Superintendent Pedro Martirez.
“This does not look intentional but she [the teacher] is under custody,” he added.
