8 hospitalized after grill is brought inside WC home
Eight people, including four children, had to be rushed to the hospital Sunday with carbon monoxide poisoning after a small, outdoor hibachi grill was brought inside a Sleepy Hollow home.
Investigators say that some people at the house decided to grill indoors to stay warm and for the convenience, which caused the release of the deadly carbon monoxide into the confined space.
Sleepy Hollow Fire Chief John Korzelius says that investigators are checking if the basement apartment, where the grill was brought, had any carbon monoxide detectors. He is urging everyone to avoid grilling indoors.
One victim was taken to a New York City hospital for hyperbaric-chamber treatment to rid the body of carbon monoxide and the rest are expected to be fine.
