Three men sustained carbon monoxide poisoning on Saturday morning in Greenville, Delaware. At a new location of a water ice franchise, around 8:45 am, the carbon monoxide poisoning occurred when the men were performing construction on the building. A 32-year-old man, who was found unconscious in the building, complained of suffering from a headache after he was resuscitated, and was transported to the Christiana Hospital. Another man who is 48-years old complained of an “altered mental state,” and a third man who is 46-years old complained of suffering from a headache, dizziness, and an “altered mental state.” Both men were sent to the hospital for treatment.
Carbon monoxide poisoning is the leading cause of accidental fatalities in the U.S. and may also lead to brain damage from the exposure. Since it is a colorless, odorless gas, many victims of carbon monoxide poisoning may not realize they have been exposed to the gas if it goes undetected in a home or business. Property owners must be responsible that the properties they maintain remain safe and secure for their employees and any visitors they may have.
