USA/THAILAND: Refrigerant leaks have hospitalised 17 people in the last few days in two separate incidents in the US and Thailand.
 
Last Friday, 10 fishermen were rushed to hospital, four of them already unconscious, following a refrigerant leak onboard a tuna fishing boat in Phra Pradaeng, south Bangkok.
 
Reports in the Bangkok Post say leak occurred in the cold storage section of the boat, the Panama-registered Tiara 108.
 
Twenty crew members were affected in total but 10 declined hospital treatment after receiving first aid.
 
An investigation is underway to determine the cause of the leak which has been attributed to a “Freon”, possibly R22.
