Pepper spray incident at St. Mary's

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A pepper spray canister discharged at St. Mary's Medical Center Thursday morning.

Tenet Hospital spokesman Ryan Libber says somehow a box, containing a pepper spray canister, ended up at the nurses' station at the pediatric emergency room.

A nurse took the canister and accidently set off the spray.

That prompted a response from West Palm Beach Fire Rescue

The pediatric ER was evacuated and patients were relocated to the main emergency room while the building is being decontaminated.
