Two American diplomats stationed in Guangzhou, China were reportedly evacuated from the region when they fell ill after hearing mysterious noises — as the baffling sicknesses, which began in Cuba, continues to haunt US embassies.
The diplomats were flown out by the State Department, which also sent in a medical team to evaluate other employees at the American Consulate along with their families, who may be experiencing similar symptoms, according to The New York Times.
The illnesses in Guangzhou began when Mark Lenzi and his family started experiencing chronic headaches after he described hearing “marbles bouncing and hitting a floor then rolling on an incline with a static sound,” the Washington Post reported.
The State Department acknowledged the Lenzi incident late last month.
In a similar event at the US embassy in Havana, Cuba in 2016 — 24 employees and their families experienced headaches, nausea, hearing loss and cognitive issues.
