Museum Goers Injured In Demonstration Mishap
Authorities say a demonstration about the science of tornadoes went awry at a Nevada museum, leaving several people with minor burns or smoke inhalation. Emergency crews responded to a report of a possible explosion around 4:00 yesterday at the Terry Lee Wells Discovery Museum in downtown Reno.
A preliminary investigation indicates it wasn't an explosion but a chemical flash, which is similar to if someone threw gasoline on a fire. Eight children and one adult received care at a hospital for minor burns and minor smoke inhalation.
