4 WNYW REPORTERS TREATED FOR CO POISONING
Friday, September 17, 2010
Being a reporter is a dangerous job. But it wasn't some criminal or angry relative that put four WMYW reporters at risk. It was their own live truck!
The Daily News reports four reporters at the NYC Fox O&O were recently treated for carbon monoxide poisoning after working with the station's remote trucks. Reporters Lisa Evers, Andrea Day, Nicole Johnson and Ti-Hua Chang. Evers became disoriented on the job. A doctor reportedly told her she could have died if she waited any longer for treatment. Several crew members were also treated for exposure to the deadly odorless gas.
The station's live trucks use gas-fueled generators to power equipment when the vehicle isn't moving. New exhaust equipment is being installed on the generators. The situation has gotten the attention of the station's union.
"We are working as quickly as possible to resolve this situation," said station general manager Lew Leone.
