Family poisoned during fish tank clean

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Katie Stevenson, her husband Mark and three of her four children were rushed to hospital by paramedics wearing protective masks after cleaning the coral in their fish tank made it give off palytoxin, the second deadliest poison known to man.

Police and the fire brigade had to cordon off their home near Victoria Park at just after midnight last Tuesday.

Katie, 34, said if they had decided to go to sleep instead of calling 111 when the symptoms began, they would have died.

It is believed to be one of only a few recorded cases of palytoxin poisoning within the UK.
