GRAMERCY — A fight between two students at an East 15th Street high school left a pair of school safety officers injured Thursday afternoon, authorities said.

The brawl erupted shortly before 12:30 p.m., when the two female students began fighting inside the High School for Health Professions and Human Services at 345 E. 15th St., police and education officials said.

Cops took two people into custody following the dustup, NYPD officials said.

The school safety officers suffered a sprained ankle and possible shoulder injuries and chest pains, a Department of Education spokeswoman said.

It was not immediately clear if a weapon was involved, though multiple students at the school said one of the girls had a knife.

Four people were taken to Bellevue and Beth Israel hospitals about an hour after the incident, according to the FDNY.
