120 rushed to hospital after S. Ala. ammonia leak

THEODORE, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say more than 120 people were sickened by the leak of ammonia at an Alabama plant, and four are in intensive care.

Hospital officials at Mobile say 29 have been admitted, including the four in intensive care. Many of those sickened were part of BP's oil spill cleanup crew on the Alabama coast.

The leak occurred Monday morning at the Millard Refrigerated Services plant at Theodore, south of Mobile.

Scores were forced to hide inside their homes and at a school after the leak was reported.
