Four People Hospitalized After Smoking

Sarasota, Fla.-(970 WFLA)-Four people are hospitalized after smoking "Spice" at Five Points Park.  Police say it was a homemade version of the fake pot that had been sprayed with embalming fluid and formaldehyde.

Officers on patrol noticed at least 30 people gathered in the park.  The officers found a man face down on the ground.  Shortly after that discovery three more people collapsed. Witnesses say the four had been smoking "Spice."

EMS workers had to restrain one man to put him in the ambulance.  The other victims did not fight paramedics, but were extremely sick.
