PLANTATION, Fla. – Students and staff members were evacuated from South Plantation High School on Wednesday morning after a false bomb threat.

Plantation Fire Department Chief Joel Gordon confirmed that two students suffered heat-related issues during the evacuation. He said one student was taken to Plantation General Hospital and the other was released to their parents.

A spokeswoman for Broward County Public Schools confirmed that the school at 1300 SW 54 Ave. received the bomb threat around 9:40 a.m.

She said students were evacuated to the athletic field while authorities investigated the threat that turned out to be a hoax. Students and staff members were allowed to reenter the building once the all-clear was given.
