3 Amish teachers suffer carbon monoxide poisoning but survive

Authorities say three Amish school teachers escaped a small schoolhouse that had filled with carbon monoxide gas Tuesday.

Topeka Fire Chief Stewart Bender says the three teachers lived in the school in a rural area of LaGrange County. Bender told The News Sun one of the teachers woke up about 5:30 a.m. Tuesday and alerted the others, one of whom was initially unresponsive.

Bender says the three showed signs of carbon monoxide poisoning and were vomiting. One teacher was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment while medics treated the others at the scene.

Bender said the carbon monoxide was traced to an exhaust leak on a well water pump and a damaged stove pipe.
