Six Sent To Hospital At Strip Mall In Hendersonville
HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. – Officials are trying to determine what sent six people to the hospital and evacuated a business in Hendersonville on Friday.
Initially, shoppers inside Aldi reported feeling sick around 11:45 a.m. at a shopping center in the 500 block of on West Main Street.
When emergency crews first got on the scene, there were as many as 30 people who said they were affected. Only six of those were taken to the hospital with non-critical injuries.
A medical business on the lower level was evacuated, but the other business were not.
Officials said the strip mall has been under renovations for the past 30 to 40 days, and police and fire have received numerous calls, including the construction crew knocking off sprinkler heads as recent as Friday morning.
Piedmont Natural Gas said an investigation determined it was not a gas or carbon monoxide leak, so police and fire crews continue to seek what caused people to get sick.
