Another Possible Oologah Victim

Oologah, OK – 1-year-old being tested for meningitis in Tulsa

CLAREMORE, Okla. (AP) A 1-year-old boy has been taken to a Tulsa hospital for testing for meningitis.

Oologah-Talala Emergency Medical Services spokesman John Wylie says an ambulance was sent to Claremore Regional Hospital about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday to take the boy to St. Francis Hospital.

Wylie said he can't release additional information and hospital officials declined comment.

It wasn't known if the case is related to a strain of meningitis that's killed two Oologah-Talala elementary students and left five other students sick.
