A woman has injured herself and 18 others in a subway train in a bizarre pepper spray incident.
Police in Vienna said the woman was attempting to attack a man who complained she was talking too loudly on her cell phone.
But somehow instead of spraying him she injured 18 other passengers.
In a statement, authorities said the incident injured 17 schoolchildren, their teacher and the cell-phone talker herself. All were taken to the hospital.
The man who complained appears not to have been affected in the incident.
Police said he had left the scene by the time they arrived.
Police also said the complainer and the phone talker lashed out at each other physically before the woman resorted to the pepper spray.
