Unknown toxin injures 50 people, triggers evacuation & closure of Hamburg airport

13 February 2017, 12:58 | Clarence Schmidt

Upon initiation of an air quality check using the airport's monitoring systems, authorities discovered an unknown toxin that was spreading in the air.

Schönhardt said there was "no evidence" that the incident was a terrorist attack.

An airport spokesman said that police and firefighters had concluded from their initial investigation the substance was probably pepper spray. Firefighters started examining them to find out whether they had to be taken to the hospital.

Passengers complained of a foul odor before symptoms appeared in what appeared to be a chemical leak.

Those who were evacuated from the airport had to wait outside in sub-zero temperatures.
