    This is why I warn people that mankind is generally stupid. Most of the time, people die from the dumb decisions of others. Its your job to be Batman about saving your own life. Solve the riddle before everybody else or youre just another victim in Gotham. From food preparing jobs to cleaning jobs to even driving jobs, youll find the dumbest of the dumb. These are the people mixing toxic chemicals, making your food without washing their nasty hands, & running over your babies as they get off the school bus in a school zone. You cant trust this world/age. Batman level or whoops. -Jesus is King

    Amazing the same people who take time to make a joke out of this mans death, go on other videos and bash people in comment sections for different reasons that are sensitive to “them”. Primary example why I never like people’s comments on SEsoft people are so two faced .

    So many uncaring people, everyone thinks not mixing cleaning chemicals is taught in high school. High schools by me all have focus on different things, art, business, etc. My business high school did not teach chemistry. I only learned about ammonia and bleach mixing into poison from a co-worker who mentioned it when I was 20. I didn't learn it at home because my mom only kept ammonia in the house, never bleach. Maybe it's time to ban employers from having ammonia and bleach at the same time in the businesses. Bleach is needed to sanitize food prep areas, probably need to find an alternative for ammonia. There's something better than blaming the victims.

    Turns out that the chemicals weren't mixed together. They used one cleaner on the floor, but they didn't realize another one had spilled earlier in the day. This is just a sad, sad accident.


    Chlorine gas.

    This happen more than know. It is easy to mix 2 chemical by mistake. Years ago, my stupid a$$ was cleaning a bathroom and mixed some ammonia and some bleach. NEVER AGAIN, will I be that stupid. I was lucky to get out of the house, but felt real stupid when all the fire Dept. came. They gave me the old " always read the label speech, then said, it happen more than you know."

    This isn’t said in the video but is noted in the description. This happened in Burlington, MA. I live there. I drive by that Buffalo Wild Wings often. My mother happens to work for the police station of our town. Let me tell you, this was absolutely harrowing to get live updates on before it even got picked up by the local news. It’s weird to see your small town on national news, especially for something as tragic and unheard of as this.
