chemical bomb test in pennsylvania

from herald-mail: By the time medical personnel reached the "victims" at a mock terrorism exercise Sunday, most of them had abandoned coughing and unconsciousness to go in search of a bathroom.

Made aware that they were needed, the female victims jogged back to the J.C. Penney wing of the Chambersburg Mall and collapsed to the floor.

There, two by two, they were loaded onto stretchers and taken outside to the showers in a mobile decontamination unit.

The volunteer victims' roles were woven into an exercise that Susan Dutko, of Franklin County Emergency Services, said was designed to "make us all better on something we hopefully never have to do."
