A Brooklyn elementary school was temporarily shut down Thursday and at least eight students were taken to the hospital after AXE body spray was "released in a sixth grade classroom."
"EMS transported eight students to the hospital and parents of two students took them to their own doctors," Medgar Evers College Preparatory School said in a statement. "One student declined medical attention."
It was not immediately clear how the body spray, infamous for being popular among pre-pubesent men, was able to hospitalize the students.
"The school is looking into the incident," the school's statement said. "Disciplinary action is pending."
One commercial for the body spray promises that "even angels will fall" in order to get a whiff of a man wearing AXE.
