LEON, Mexico (KTLA) – Several people were rushed to the hospital during a Jagermeister sponsored pool party after organizers poured liquid nitrogen into hotel pool.
The liquid nitrogen mixed with the pool’s chlorine, creating a toxic fog that left one man in a coma and sickened eight others.
The dense cloud created by the chemicals made breathing difficult and prevented rescuers from seeing other party-goers who were unconscious in the water.
Most of the injured were released from the hospital, but a 21-year-old man remained in a coma. Local authorities were investigating the incident to determine if charges would be filed.
