Rourkela: Five girl students of the MGM School located at Sector 19 in Rourkela fell unconscious today while rehearsing for Independence Day celebrations.

As per reports, soon after the five students fell unconscious during the rehearsal at the Ispat Stadium, they were rushed to the Community Welfare Society (CWS) hospital. Subsequently, one of the girl students was shifted to the Ispat General Hospital (IGH), after her condition deteriorated.
