The Cherry Engineering building at Lamar University was evacuated Thursday morning as a precaution after two students passed out.
Lamar University Spokesperson Brian Sattler said around 10:30 a.m. a student fell and hit his or her head, passing out. A few minutes later, a second student passed out. The university has not released the name or gender of the students.
As a precaution, a faculty member pulled the alarm and had the building evacuated.
An Emergency Medical Services team from Beaumont Fire-Rescue came in and monitored for fumes, but found none. All clear was given about a half hour later.
Sattler surmised that the second student saw blood and passed out.
The first student was taken to hospital to get checked out.
