About 20 Forsyth County employees were sent to the hospital after a chemical spill at the local jail in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. A toxic dry cleaning chemical was the source. Some of the employees fell ill. The EPA said that inhaling these chemicals for a short time can cause dizziness, fatigue, headaches and sweating, but can progress to lack of coordination and unconsciousness.
