Harvard Dental School evacuated after one person found dead

Emergency crews are responded to a death investigation following a reported hazmat incident at Harvard Dental School on Friday.

Firefighters in special protective suits responded to the school at 190 Longwood Ave. in Boston just before 11 a.m.

According to 7’s Steve Cooper, the incident is a “Level 3” hazmat incident.

Responding crews found a body in a lab near chemicals, prompting the hazmat response out of an abundance of caution. Officials say that body may have been there overnight.

There is no word on the cause of death, but an autopsy is scheduled.

Employees who were evacuated were in the middle of performing dental surgery when the incident occurred.
