Five teenage students were injured, and two were taken to the hospital after an explosion during an after-school science activity at a Los Angeles-area middle school.
Glendale police and school district officials say the two hospitalized students had cuts and gashes to their faces from a broken glass beaker or bottle that exploded. The other three had only scratches.
The blast occurred last week at Eleanor J. Toll Middle School, but the injured students came from neighboring Herbert Hoover High School.
