Chemicals sicken children at Georgia pool. Tamala Edwards reports during Action News Mornings on August 15, 2018.

Dangerous chemicals sickened more than a dozen children at a pool outside of Atlanta, Georgia.

It happened at a Lifetime Fitness' outdoor pool in Johns Creek Tuesday night.

Fire officials say a chlorine mixer malfunctioned and pushed too much chlorine into the pool.

Twenty-eight children, ages 10 to 12, were in the pool for a swim meet. Eight children were taken to the hospital, while the rest were treated at the scene.
