Around 10.30 a.m., the kids were asked to assemble on a playing field directly in the sun as professionals tried to instruct them on how to handle a fire that started in an LPG cylinder.
According to officials, at least 15 female pupils were knocked out during a drill at St. Xavier School Bettiah in the West Champaran area on Wednesday.
The district Fire Department held the practise drill on the grounds of the school. Around 10.30 a.m., the kids were requested to assemble on a playing field directly in the sun so that professionals could teach them how to put out a fire that started in an LPG cylinder.
The girls collapsed on the ground unconscious as a result of the severe heat. At the time of the simulated drill, there was no ambulance on the premises of the school. After an ambulance arrived, six pupils were brought to the hospital.
After being carried inside the school building, the other nine pupils began to feel better.
"We rescued the youngsters right away and brought them inside the school grounds. The sufferers are secure and making a good recovery. The heat and perhaps lack of food caused them to pass out. Six pupils were sent to the hospital, and we have summoned the doctors, stated the school principal in a written statement.
