Faulty Pipe Causes Deadly Carbon Monoxide Leak: New York Personal Injury Lawyer Kenneth A. Wilhelm Comments

New York, N.Y (PRWEB) April 11, 2014

A broken water heater flue pipe inside a restaurant was the cause of a carbon monoxide leak at a Long Island mall that killed one person and left at least 27 sickened. A Feb. 23 Reuters news report states that the faulty pipe had allowed the buildup of lethal carbon monoxide gas on Feb. 22 in the basement of the Legal Sea Foods restaurant at the Walt Whitman Mall in Huntington Station, which is about 40 miles east of New York City.

Police and emergency personnel were called to the restaurant the evening of Feb. 22 after reports that a worker had passed out and fallen down stairs, the report said. The 55-year-old restaurant manager had died of cardiac arrest as he was being transported by ambulance to the local hospital, the article states. Also, 27 other people including restaurant workers, ambulance personnel and police officers were transported to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries, the report stated.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that can cause sudden illness or death. This gas is commonly found in combustion fumes, small gas engines, stoves, lanterns, burning charcoal and wood, gas ranges and heating systems, the CDC states. The most common symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, chest pain, lightheadedness and confusion, according to the agency’s website.

Carbon monoxide illnesses and fatalities can be prevented by installing carbon monoxide detectors in buildings, says New York personal injury lawyer Kenneth A. Wilhelm. “Whether you live in an apartment, a single-family home or whether you own a business, please make sure that you have carbon monoxide detectors in the building whether or not your city’s code requires it. These inexpensive devices save lives.”

Wilhelm also offers a number of tips to help prevent these types of tragedies:

TORC Partners with Wahoos Fish Taco To Promote Season Opener Duel In The Desert in Primm, Nevada April 5-6

Dana Point, Calif. (PRWEB) February 28, 2014

TORC: The Off-Road Championship, the nations premiere short-course, off-road racing series, has announced that Wahoos Fish Taco will provide exciting promotional support for the series season opener on April 5-6, 2014, at Primm Off Road Raceway in Primm, Nev.

The Wahoos involvement in the upcoming Duel in the Desert is the companys first foray with the TORC series. With deep roots in action sports, Wahoos brings a passionate community that is a perfect match for the action-packed world of short-course, off-road racing.

With nearly 1 million customers walking through these participating Wahoos locations during the promotional period, this partnership provides TORC with an incredible opportunity to raise awareness for our event and our sponsors, said TORC President BJ Birtwell. Wahoos customers typically have an affinity for action sports culture and outdoor sports. We believe theyll appreciate the opportunity to experience 900-horsepower TORC Trucks ripping up a revitalized track at Primm Valley Off Road Raceway.

Beginning March 1, all Wahoos Fish Taco locations in Southern California and Nevada will offer tickets to the event simply with the purchase of a Monster Energy drink. Presentation of both the can for recycling and the ticket will gain free entry into the event.

In addition, a special Wahoos VIP sweepstakes will award two winners with VIP Trackside Seating including full hospitality and catering, hotel accommodations, transportation to the event, and a once-in-a-lifetime ride around the track in a TORC PRO 2 race truck. Fans can enter at the counter of all participating Wahoos locations.

TORC is a great fit for us, commented Wing Liam, Co-Founder of Wahoos Fish Taco. Our customers love participating in and watching sports that push athletes to the very edge. TORC racing certainly fits that bill, and were thrilled to support it. Were also excited to be catering the drivers, crews and VIPs at the event with delicious Wahoos food.

TORC: The Off-Road Championship will hold seven events across the United States this year, with NBC Sports providing television coverage and a behind-the-scenes docu-reality series. The Duel In The Desert takes place April 5-6 at Primm Valley Off Road Raceway in Primm, NV. The track is currently undergoing some exciting renovations in anticipation of the event.

The 2014 event schedule features races at the following venues:
