Warning: Mystery Mold in Daytona Beach School

Kids Sick from Mystery Mold At brand new Daytona Beach School

Toxicologists and the county health department visiting Longstreet Elementary can't figure out what's causing the mold in this freshly rebuilt school. No obvious mold or environment for mold growth was found, but kids are still experiencing illness.

Last month, air samples confirmed mold in the air. Parents report symptoms in their children: "Stomach aches, severe stomach aches, bloody nose, wheezing, coughing and various respiratory issues.

The school pulled everything from the building. Carpeting wet from cleaning appeared to be responsible, although the Health Department found other potential causes.

Parents are considering lawsuits against the school district.
