POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Five high school students were treated at MidHudson Regional Hospital of Westchester Medical Center in Poughkeepsie for evaluation of hypothermia after three crew boats capsized in the Hudson River during practice Wednesday night, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.

In all, first responders treated 57 high school students after the crew boats capsized due to rough waters, reported the Journal. The students were given dry clothes and Mylar blankets to increase their body temperature. The five transported to the hospital were not responding to effort to raise their body temperatures, Fairview Fire District Chief Christopher Maeder told the Poughkeepsie Journal. 

The five students being treated included one from Poughkeepsie High School, three from John Jay High School and one from Roy C. Ketcham High School, added the Poughkeepsie Journal.
