At least two people, including a former double agent who spied on Russia for the British, have been hospitalized after being exposed to an “unknown substance.” The two individuals were transported to a local medical facility and are currently in critical condition.

The incident occurred in the city of Salisbury, Wiltshire, in southern England. Local police reported a “major incident” of distress at a shopping center on Sunday. An eyewitness to the incident told the BBC that she saw a man and woman sitting on a bench, looking “like they’d been taking something quite strong.”

She added that the woman appeared to unconscious while the man was making strange gestures with his arms. “They looked so out of it that I thought even if I did step in, I wasn’t sure how I could help,” she added.
