D.C. Fire and EMS went to the William H. Rumsey Aquatic Center Monday evening after several people were overcome by a chemical odor.
Seven adults and two children were evaluated at the center near Eastern Market in the 600 block of North Carolina Avenue SE. One adult was taken to a hospital.
Authorities believe the odor was caused by a muriatic acid spill. It’s unknown how that occurred. The source has not been found.
