Atlantic Iowa Students Hurt

Three middle school students in Atlantic were injured when a light fixture fell in a recently renovated classroom.

The students at Atlantic Middle School were hurt when the fixture fell Wednesday morning. School principal Cam Smith says two students suffered scratches and one received a bump to the head. They were all treated by the school nurse, and one of the students was later taken to Cass County Memorial Hospital in Atlantic for an examination and treatment. Students were moved out of that classroom and two others with similar light fixtures. A contractor determined the fixtures weren't properly installed. They were fixed Wednesday.
