Riley ER evacuated because of strong order

INDIANAPOLIS -- Seven adults got sick at Riley's Children Hospital Thursday after a strong order took over the emergency room area.

The ER was evacuated when staff noticed the strange smell. Officials believe someone brought a substance into the hospital which prompted the evacuation.

External crews still have not identified what the source was but the area was contained and there was no evidence that it spread.

The emergency department remains closed. But all other normal hospital operations have resumed.
