Dozens of children were taken to the hospital in northern Iowa after a crop duster sprayed their school bus.

It happened near the town of Belmond Thursday morning.

Affiliate, KTIV reports at least seven students were on the bus with windows down when it was sprayed.

The bus driver then continued the route picking up 25 more students.

When the driver finally reported the bus had been sprayed, it was redirected to a nearby hospital as a precaution.

The district superintendent says none of the students have reported feeling ill.
