Smell from fridge puts 11 people in hospital

Recommended Posts

A fridge at the University of Kentucky smelt so bad that it ended up hospitalizing nearly a dozen people.

Most people will be familiar with what happens when something goes off inside the refrigerator, but for workers at the University of Kentucky's Dimock Animal Pathology building this week the smell from one particular fridge was so overwhelmingly awful that the place had to be evacuated.

I have been rendered to vomiting fits from decomposing materials over the years.

To my great fortune, my ancestors seem to have breed towards having snuffy noses though. So a large amount of odors that should have done me in have floated on by with no results.

I read this story about this cop that saw a bag of garbage by the road. He wanted to find out who was dumping so he opened the bag. Fumes from products to make meth knocked him out and he was hospitalized. So yea what you smell could be dangerous. When I was picking up garbage off the highway it made me think twice about looking in anything or touching it with my bare hands.
