School district officials in southwest suburban Alsip are trying to figure out what caused several students to go to the hospital during cheerleading practice at Lane Elementary School.

Several students complained of shortness of breath and four girls between the ages of 11 and 12 were taken to the hospital.

Emergency crews tested the air in the gym and it was OK, but the gym was aired out as a precaution.
