The Miami Herald reports seven inmates in the Miami-Dade County Jail were hospitalized from inhaling an unknown substance over the last five days. Officials say three corrections staff members were also taken to the hospital on Tuesday night after being sick from breathing what was in the air.
Miami Fire-Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll says the people were nauseated and vomiting.
Jail spokesman Juan Diasgranados says there is an investigation into what caused the illness. He says contraband drugs are a chief suspect.
