So now we can have gas leaks in a Church too! If you thought that toxic gas monitors are necessary to be installed only in industrial plants, you’re wrong! You may need them in as safe a place as a Church.

AP reports that the local Authorities in Madison, Wisconsin said that six people — including a toddler — got sick from carbon monoxide poisoning during a Sunday church service in Madison. The first indication that there was a problem came at 11:01 a.m. when paramedics were called to attend to a 2-year-old child who was reported to be groggy . The parents of the child decided to transport the child to the hospital on their own.

Fortunately  by the time a second distress call was reported to the local Fire Department, Engine Company 4 responded, bringing along monitors to check air quality at the church. The portable Carbon Monoxide toxic gas monitors showed a CO level of 3000 ppm- more than 100 times the safe limit!

The incident shows the importance of having portable toxic gas monitors handy in all places and not just industrial plants.
