A Killer Gas That You’re Inhaling Right Now
Over the winter season, many vacationers were held up in traffic due to unsurmountable snow. Some for a few hours, others for days.
And unfortunately, many were unequipped to handle these extreme situations.
A prime case would be the death of at least 21 people in Pakistan due to a snowstorm, in a frosty location called Murree. Murree is an extremely cold part of Pakistan that drops to low temperatures, causing depths of snow during the winter season.
Many of these deaths were caused by hypothermia.
Hypothermia is a medical emergency that occurs when your body loses heat faster than it can produce heat, causing a dangerously low body temperature.
This causes the vital organs, including the heart to stop pumping blood, therefore losing its function.
Another cause of death was due to a large concentration of carbon monoxide…
…it’s a unique gas you’re inhaling right now.
