1 dead, three injured due to carbon monoxide poisoning

1 dead, three injured due to carbon monoxide poisoning”

A woman died and three men were hospitalized after being overcome by suspected carbon monoxide poisoning from a generator being used to power their home near Loxahatchee, officials said. One portable generator can emit the same amount of deadly carbon monoxide gas as hundreds of mid-size cars.

There have been reports of at least 74 cases of CO poisoning over the last two days, prompting a warning from the Florida College of Emergency Physicians.

"It's a tragedy that could have been avoided", Borroto said. CO poisoning is often hard to diagnose because the symptoms mimic other illnesses, such as the flu.

The victims told officials that they had a generator outside the home in a breezeway. If you're unsure of how to hook your generator up and operate it properly, check with your local fire department. Just as you would not leave a vehicle running in a closed garage, do not run a generator inside a garage, home, shed or near open windows or vents.
