In what comes as a bizarre piece of news, a school bus carrying Buffalo Creek Middle School students had to be evacuated after a student sprayed too much Axe body spray. The smell was so strong that while it was unclear how much was used, it did manage to wade its way through the entire van, a Unilad report read.  The student responsible hasn't been named yet.  According to the Manatee County School District, the stench was enough to convince the driver something was wrong. He pulled over at the intersection of 119th Avenue East and Erie Road, near Parrish. 

The perfume adverts suggested the product will make the user feel cooler, calmer and more collected, not to forget, desirable, attractive and smelling great. Unfortunately, it did the opposite as everyone aboard the bus were forced to alight as quickly as possible. Such was the seriousness of the situation, emergency services had to arrive and perform a quick check to see if the passengers had inhaled too much of the spray.  According to the Miami Herald, the incident wasn't serious. Another bus was called in to pick up the students.  It is unclear if the can was confiscated or whether the entire contents of the spray was used on the first bus. 

Parrish Fire District Division Chief, Mike Williamson told Today that he interviewed all 30 students who were aboard the bus to determine who set off the smell, but nobody would admit to it. "We had heard reports from other community members that it’s somehow a thing with kids spraying it all over each other to smell nice or prank each other,” he explained. "They must have watched a lot of episodes of 'Band of Brothers' because they would not say who did it."

"I never say I’ve seen it all because the minute I say that, something else has to top it," he joked.
