Carbon Monoxide Leak at Lincoln County NC Plant Injures 28

A serious leak of carbon monoxide gas at a plant in Lincoln County on Monday has resulted in the hospitalization of 28 people including one emergency responder.

The leak occurred at the RW Garcia Corp. Plant at around 1:00 pm.  It is not clear what caused the leak at this time.  However, in many of these cases, gas leaks are the result of either poor maintenance practices or the failure of a valve or pipe fitting.  Hopefully, state OSHA inspectors will determine what went wrong here.
