Chlorine leak lands 25 in Mohali hospital

Mohali, June 7

About 25 persons were hospitalised following a chlorine gas leak at the waterworks in Balongi here late this night.

Panic spread in the area after the incident as residents living around the waterworks complained of difficulty in breathing and breathlessness.

All patients have been admitted to the Civil Hospital in Phase VI here.

Civil Surgeon Dr Manjit Singh said around 25 persons, including women and children, visited the hospital. As many as 10 patients had been discharged. The condition of all patients was stable. Hopefully, they would be discharged in the next couple of hours.

Sources said two fire brigade officials, who reached the spot, were also rushed to the Civil Hospital. Later, Fire Department officials buried the cylinder in the ground, but gas continued to leak till the filing of the report. — TNS
