YUMA, AZ - Ten farmworkers have released from a hospital in Yuma after a crop-dusting plane sprayed them with agricultural chemicals.
Rural/Metro fire department officials say Friday night's incident exposed more than 40 farmworkers and required them all to be decontaminated. That involved the workers stripping off their clothes in the cold night air and being sprayed with a fire hose.
Many of the workers complained of irritation to the eyes, nose, throat and skin.
Fire Capt. Don Graham tells the Yuma Sun, two workers were in a field about five miles west of Yuma and 40 others were in buses.
Yuma Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Shay Andres says 10 patients were treated and all were released by Saturday morning.
The name of the chemical and the crop-dusting company were not released.
