An airplane returning to Los Angeles International Airport about 45 minutes ago has dumped engine fuel onto a school playground, striking several students at Park Avenue Elementary School in Cudahy, officials said.
The Los Angeles County Fire Department said that more than 70 firefighters and paramedics are at the school assessing multiple patients.
L.A. City Fire spokesperson Nicholas Prange said two classes were outside when the liquid rained down shortly before lunch time. Students and staff were instructed to go indoors and remain there for the time being.
Screaming in agony as the fuel burned their eyes the students affected were doused with large amounts of water and paramedics on the scene administered anesthetic to help with terrific pain they were in.
