Children on school bus in Anne Arundel injured by antifreeze

Several elementary school children in Edgewater were scalded by antifreeze on a school bus Thursday afternoon, Anne Arundel County police said.

A pipe on the bus broke, splashing some of about 30 children on the school bus with antifreeze, police said. It is unclear how this happened. The children had just left the lot near Central Elementary School when the pipe broke at about 3:15 p.m., police said.

About five children were taken to the hospital with minor burns and blisters from the chemical, police said. The children were believed to be about 10 or 11 years old.
