Posted on Nov 30, 2012

All seven students who were injured Wednesday when a science experiment exploded at Wilson Middle School have been released from the hospital.  Eighth-grader Justin Yuen was released Thursday evening from Johns Hopkins Bayview Center in Baltimore, officials said.

Five children were burned and two suffered problems from smoke inhalation after the experiment involving rubbing alcohol and an open flame sent a fireball through the air around 11:20 a.m.

Investigators said the teacher, James Redington was using a flame to light rubbing alcohol. Carlisle Fire & Rescue Chief John Heberlig said investigation has not been completed.

About 25 students were in the classroom at the time of the incident, authorities said.
