SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Emergency crews responded to Savannah Mall early Friday afternoon after one person experienced a seizure, and others reported feeling ill.
Paramedics arrived on the scene around 1:30 p.m. to an educational facility located at the mall.
According to Chuck Kearns with Chatham Emergency Services, the cause of the seizure is not known. He originally said three people had seizures, but a spokeswoman from the Savannah Fire Department later said only one person was confirmed to have had a seizure.
Early on in the investigation, Kearns suggested possible inhalation of poisonous fumes may have caused the episode.
The Savannah Fire Department was called in to monitor the air quality as a precaution. Officials said students and staff at the facility sheltered in a safe place outside until the investigation was complete.
Shortly before 4 p.m., the department said no hazards had been detected.
News 3 is told a total of four people, located inside and outside of the mall, were taken to the hospital from the scene.
The area is now back open to the public.
