Crew members from ship at port go to hospital

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Four crew members from a ship at the State Port of Wilmington went to the hospital this morning.

The Wilmington Fire Department was dispatched to a chemical leak at the port. When crews got there, they found that there was no leak.

Investigators say there was a leak on the ship in question about ten days ago at another port. The leak was cleaned up and taken care of. WFD says four crew members from the ship took a cab to the hospital complaining of some residual effects from the prior spill.
