LOGAN — A comedy hypnotist's show didn't leave many people laughing when a 17-year-old girl had to be hospitalized.

Logan police said the show was put on last week at Logan High School for homecoming.

Logan Police Capt. Eric Collins said he was attending a girl's volleyball game next to the auditorium and came out of the gymnasium to see the 17-year-old girl being wheeled into an ambulance.

"She was hyperventilating and very panicky," Collins said Monday. "I went inside to see what was going on, and it was kind of chaotic. The hypnotist was in the audience going around to different people in the audience attempting to get them out of a state of hypnosis."

Police said several young women had problems and were not able to snap out of their hypnosis easily. The show ended up being canceled by school officials, officers said.
