Life back to normal after York Co. inmates hospitalized for CO exposure

Posted: Updated:
YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

Life is back to normal at the York County Prison after 49 inmates were taken to the hospital last week for carbon monoxide exposure.

On Wednesday, carbon monoxide made its way into a single female housing unit during heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) replacement construction by McClure Company. Officials told abc27 that dozens of ambulances were called to the prison just after 11:00 p.m. when female inmates started to get sick in the gym.

McClure said the situation has been remedied and carbon monoxide levels within the facility have remained normal since shortly after the initial incident.

The affected housing unit was reopened today. Since Wednesday, inmates who did not show symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure were relocated to other parts of the facility. All inmates who had been treated for exposure have since returned to the prison.
