Default Fumes kill

Miguel Martín and Toñi Ortiz's first Christmas together in their new home in Campanillas ended in tragedy as they died from the fumes given off from the coals from a barbecue turned into a home-made heater. The signs left behind say that the young couple had filled an empty paint tin with hot coals from the barbecue, on which they had cooked their Christmas Eve meal, to heat up their bedroom.

KNOW THE SIGNS ie.CO at dangerous levels has NO SMELL, If you feel tired for no reason, if you are yawning a lot for no reason, if you feel "tight" across the forehead, if your face is flushed, if in the mornings or any time during the day you feel "hungover" with flu like symptoms for no reason. You could at lower levels feel ill and not know why.....ALWAYS suspect CO poisoning

Full Story............

this was a common or much used method of suicide in Hong Kong. To go into a room and light a charcoal burner then just let it happen. Charcoal fires are basically meant for open air.In a confined space they are deadly.

Carbon Monoxide kills because it attaches to the blood where oxygen should. Detectors are available to monitor CO levels, and it's not just charcoal that can cause a tragedy: a wrongly fitted flue, gas fires gas water heaters can all be culprits

There was a similar story a little while ago in Malaga where a father and son died by using one.

Possibly the most agonising and disgusting way to die I can, for the moment think of.

It paralyses your voluntary muscles, but leaves you conscious with a headache from hell, then your involuntary ones go, so you are lying there conscious as you vomit and start to inhale it.

In my line of work I see people taking the most crazy risks, since they don't see monoxide poisoning as at all serious.

GET YOUR CHIMNEYS/FLUES SWEPT EVERY YEAR.

If the flue isn't clean and clear, then all the products of combustion are going to void into the living space.
