At least 65 people underwent decontamination with a hazmat team on Saturday following a chemical leak at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Splashtown in Spring, Texas, according to local authorities.
The chemicals involved are believed to be hypochlorite solution and 35% sulfuric acid, causing “minor skin and/or inhalation irritation,” according to the Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office.
Spring firefighters decontaminated 39 people at the scene who refused ambulance transport to a local hospital. Another 26 people were transported to hospitals for further treatment.
