Members of church group hospitalized, bacteria to blame

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The state Health Department is investigating an incident that sent 14 church campers to the hospital with diarrhea, nausea and vomiting.

Thirteen members of a church youth group and their sponsor were hospitalized Saturday after spending time at the Falls Creek Baptist Center in south central Oklahoma near Davis.

Bacteria in a single cabin is considered to be the culprit.

A spokesman for the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma termed the illnesses at Falls Creek an isolated incident confined to a single cabin and a single church group.

The state Health Department has begun interviewing church youth group teenagers and adult sponsors about what they ate and specific group activities at Falls Creek.
