Twelve two-year-olds at the Temple Emanuel Early Childhood Center at 10101 Connecticut Ave. in Kensington were transported to the hospital this morning after suffering “multiple” bee stings during a fire drill, according to the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service.
They sustained minor injuries and are in stable condition, according to MCFRS spokesman Scott Graham, via his Twitter feed.
A front desk attendant at Temple Emanuel said the synagogue would not be commenting. She did add the children, “were fine and taken care of.”
The Early Childhood Center has a year-round preschool program for children ages 2-5.
