Chemical leak in Kansas sends dozens to the hospital


A mistake at a chemical plant in Atchison, Kansas, caused a thick cloud of harmful gas to wash over the town on Friday. More than 60 people were treated in hospitals and at least 11,000 residents were told to take shelter inside. The chemical cloud has dispersed and an investigation into the cause is underway.
