Carbon monoxide leak in Waltham sends children to hospital

About 20 children attending Sunday school in Waltham were taken to the hospital Sunday morning after a carbon monoxide leak made several students and teachers sick, Waltham authorities said.

Fire officials said they measured “extremely high” levels of carbon monoxide in St. Mary’s Religious Education Center on Pond Street. Teachers at the Sunday school called for help around 9 a.m. after several instructors and students felt dizzy and light-headed, said Deputy Chief Michael Quinn, of the Waltham Fire Department.
