Sheffield Township Volunteer Fire Medical Officer Brian Waller said the students were a 14-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy. Tippecanoe School Corporation (TSC) Superintendent Scott Hanback said the students were burned when an alcohol chemical flared up in an 8th grade science experiment. The 14-year-old boy was airlifted to Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis. The 15-year-old was transported to a Lafayette hospital by ambulance. Sheffield Township emergency responders said that the teacher was treated at the scene for minor burns to the hands.
