Deputies with the Riverside County Sheriff's Department said several kids with the Cadet Academy were watching a demonstration being held at Bobby G. Duke Middle School, located at 85358 Bagdad St.

Emergency responders showed up around 10:40 a.m. after a boy with asthma said he was feeling lightheaded.

Once paramedics began treating the child, other kids came forward to say they were also feeling lightheaded. All of the children were treated at the hospital and released.
