Ammonia Leak Causes Emergency Response - Abilene Personal Injury Lawyer

According to KTXS - 12, 5 people were injured in an ammonia leak that happened at a Texas bakery. Emergency crews responded to a call about on Monday, July 24th. When the crews arrived, the leak had already been shut off, but several people had complained of being light headed or nauseous. It seems that an air compressor associated with heating and air conditioning was the cause of the leak. The building was evacuated and 5 of the workers were taken to the hospital, however, their condition is not known. 

Workplace Injuries

Work can be a dangerous place, sometimes. Just take this story about the bakery, for example. One minute you are making some harmless bread, then the next, you are taking a trip to the hospital because of a poisonous gas. This just goes to show that no matter how innocent of safe the job you are doing is, the unexpected can always happen. There are some inherently dangerous jobs like police work, oil and gas jobs, lumberjacking, and construction work, but catastrophic injuries are always just a few incidents away no matter what the job. From building fires and gas leaks to slips and falls, the potential for harm is ever present.
