Emergency personnel are on the scene after receiving an urgent call from the Westin Hotel, adjacent to the Baltimore-Washington Airport (BWI). The paramedics rushed nine people to the hospital for possible carbon monoxide positioning. The fire department evacuated the entire hotel as soon as it arrived. Fire Fighters are now trying to corral the rest of the confused and frightened people into a safe location outside the hotel. Police are by their patrol cars waiting for the go ahead order to investigate the inside of the hotel for suspects, though no one has been officially confirmed that this is a terrorist attack. As responders evaluate the scene, more information will become available.
