A Silver Lake Regional School student was placed in an ambulance Wednesday after several complained of not feeling well during a concert rehearsal. School Superintendent John Tuffy is looking into the cause of the incident.

One student fainted and collapsed at 9:30 Wednesday morning while in the school auditorium as she was singing and practicing for the evening’s holiday concert with 100 other students.

The Fire Depart­ment arrived at the Kingston school at 10:10 a.m.

“She was transported to the hospital,” Tuffy said. “We think she’ll be fine.”

Following the initial collapse, five students came forward saying they were also not feeling well, he said.

EMTs took vital signs and found no abnormalities, but the students were taken to hospitals for further evaluation. Tuffy estimated that an additional five students also complained of dizziness and were picked up early by their parents.

“The Fire Department looked at air quality in the ­auditorium and found nothing wrong,” he said.

“We aren’t sure what happened or why.” After the five students left, no one else complained of illness, Tuffy said.

Kingston fire officials left the school at 12:30 p.m., he said.The holiday concert was to go on as scheduled Wednesday night, Tuffy said.
