Last week 50 workers were exposed to chlorine gas released from a cylinder; eight were in critical condition—now one man has died.
Green To Yellow: In a factory in Washington, where recycling, and crushing for scrap metal occurs daily, a one-ton canister of chlorine exploded into a yellow cloud of gas. The plant rarely sees these canisters, and if they do, they are always empty. No one can say where the cylinder came from.
Blue: The company and its employees are saddened and send their condolences to the family of the man who lost his life in the accident. All the other workers have been released from the hospital. State officials in Washington are investigating the event. Hopefully the survivors will not suffer any residual effects.
