A pair of school safety officers were injured today after trying to break up a fight at the High School for Health Professions and Human Services.

A spokesperson for the Department of Education said the two officers tried to diffuse an altercation between two female students. One of the officers sprained an ankle and the other went to the hospital with a shoulder injury and chest pain.

The incident occurred sometime before 1 p.m. today. The high school, located next to Stuyvesant Town at 345 East 15th Street, prepares students for future careers in health care.
