8 taken to hospital after health-related calls at Clover Park

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — The St. Lucie County Fire District said they responded to multiple health-related calls at Clover Park in Port St. Lucie on Tuesday.

The park was the site of a sold-out spring training baseball game between the New York Mets and Yankees.

Fire district spokeswoman Brenda Stokes said emergency crews dispatched a mass casualty bus to the park because of several calls in about two hours. She said ambulances were driving back and forth from the scene.
