Three Georgia police officers were released from the hospital Sunday after suffering chemical vapors when they came across a body in a motel room.
Officials were dispatched shortly after four to the United Inn & Suites in Decatur on Saturday over a dead body in a room on the third floor, reported FOX5 Atlanta. Three police officers from Dekalb County entered the room and reported feeling dizzy and nauseous after coming into contact with the chemical that killed a 48-year-old man in the room.
"Something has made the officers sick," said Captain Eric Jackson on Saturday.
The FBI responded to the crime scene and on Sunday identified the chemical found in the room as a mixture of household cleaners.
"Apart from a combination of household cleaning solutions, no other harmful substances were identified at this time," police told Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The officers were taken to the hospital and are said to have been aware and awake Saturday night.
Shortly before the incident, hotel guests were evacuated near the contaminated area for safety's sake.
"The police told us to leave," a guest told FOX5. "We were not in our room for three hours … What was the reason?"
The HAZMAT teams arrived at the scene and took samples of the substance.
An autopsy is performed to determine the cause of death of the man, who is not treated as a murder.
The police did not release his name on Sunday, and it is unclear whether the man was accidentally exposed to the substance or deliberately.
