Axe Body Spray Mistaken For Noxious Substance, Triggers Panic At New York City School

Emergency medical teams were summoned yesterday to a New York City public school to treat students after a noxious odor was detected in a sixth-grade classroom.

It was Axe body spray.

School officials reported that the aerosol deodorant was sprayed around 1 PM in a classroom at Medgar Evers College Preparatory School in Brooklyn. Emergency Medical Services workers “transported eight students to the hospital,” while the parents of two other pupils brought them to their own doctors, according to the city’s Department of Education.

The Axe was apparently unleashed by a young scholar who is now facing disciplinary action.

According to the Axe web site, when the company’s products are used, “your new and improved male musk is released into the atmosphere, quickly reaching nearby females.” This purported “Axe Effect” triggers “increased attention” from “eager, and attractive female pursuers.”

Not to mention first responders.
