Tainted water in Montreal neighbourhood sends four people to hospital

Four people were taken to hospital in Montreal late Thursday afternoon following the leak of a hazardous substance into the water system.

Residents in a downtown area were advised not to use tap water, even if brought to a boil.

A Montreal ambulance official says the affected residents live in the same building in the Ville Marie district and suffered from nausea and diarrhea. Two other residents were treated by paramedics but not taken to hospital.
