Gallery: Students, staff pepper-sprayed during fight at Narbonne High School
Pepper spray discharged during a student altercation at Narbonne High School on Wednesday sent two students to a local hospital, while 23 others received medical attention on site, officials said.
A school counselor and a teacher at the Harbor City school also received medical treatment at the scene, Los Angeles Fire Department Battalion Chief Graham Everett said.
The unidentified male and female students were taken to Torrance Memorial Medical
Students treated at the school at 24300 Western Ave. had their eyes flushed with water.
Student witnesses told the Daily Breeze that two girls started fighting in a hallway in Building B about 10:30 a.m. The fight spilled into a classroom, where one of the girls sprayed the other.
The unidentified girl accused of discharging the pepper spray was arrested, LAUSD spokeswoman Ellen T. Morgan said.
Counselors will be at the school as needed, parents of students were told in an email from school officials.
This is the second incident involving pepper spray during fights at Narbonne in three months.
In October, a police officer trying to break up a fight involving at least two girls at the high school doused students with pepper spray.
A total of 47 suffered exposure to the irritant, sending one to a hospital, students and firefighters said.
