Student's Fart Spray Prank Ends Up Shutting Down School After Leaving Six Pupils in Hospital
Pranks are funny most of the time. There is not a single soul out there who has not laughed at one of those widely popular and viral pranks on the internet. Some of those are extremely dangerous but we don't care much about them as long as we are not a part of the prank. And in some cases, these pranksters take it too far to end up causing harm to the people around them. A Texas high school student has recently admitted to using a "stink spray" in a prank that resulted in the hospitalization of six students and the cancellation of Friday's classes.
Parents were informed by Caney Creek High School Principal Jeff Stichler that following an investigation by local law enforcement and school officials, it was determined that the smell was caused by the student who used a highly concentrated stink spray called Hensgaukt Fart Spray. "One student has confessed, and we anticipate others may be identified through our ongoing investigation," reports PEOPLE.
The school district and the district attorney's office are working together, according to Stichler, to "address this incident to the fullest extent of the Student Code of Conduct and the laws of the State of Texas." According to KHOU-11, the nasty smell began spreading near the cafeteria on Wednesday. The Caney Creek Fire Department and Conroe ISD maintenance workers were told to examine the source of the smell after the school was evacuated, but they were unsuccessful in tracking it down. Firefighters arrived at the school and checked the whole "building with gas detection equipment while at the school and were not able to locate any signs of gas," Caney Creek Fire Chief Raymond Flannelly wrote in a statement obtained by the outlet.
Classes were resumed on Thursday but once again, the authorities were called in to investigate the smell. A total of 14 students started feeling ill on that day, as per Flannelly's reports and six of them were even taken to the hospital, where they were reported to be in stable condition. The response teams that arrived at the scene collected air samples, and also used gas monitoring equipment for detection of anything harmful. The teams have also "confirmed the safety of the air quality in Caney Creek High School."
The principal of the high school announced in a statement that "they appreciate the help and support of everyone over the last few days and look forward to resuming school from Monday." Well, looks like the prankster is possibly going to face suspension for an extended period of time. This surely gives us a huge lesson about how we should be careful about playing a prank on someone and always weigh the potential dangers it may cause.
