LAKE PLACID, Fla. — Several children at a summer camp in Highlands County have been released from the hospital after mysteriously falling ill and being examined by doctors.
None of the 33 kids attending the Clover Leaf 4-H camp were seriously sick enough to require additional medical attention, aside from being hospitalized, according to county fire rescue. Three adults who also fell ill are under the same condition.
Highlands County Fire and EMS said the victims suffered a range of symptoms from fever to nausea and vomiting.
The medical mystery began Wednesday with kids getting sick. But emergency crews realized how bad it became among the group when a child passed out Thursday.
