Cleveland, OH (March 11, 2022) – A man was killed and three others were injured following an incident at a residence in Cleveland on Thursday night, March 10. The deadly accident took place at the 10000 block of Pierpoint Avenue.
Firefighters were called to the scene. A 72-year-old man suffered fatal injuries due to carbon monoxide poisoning. The man’s wife and two children were also home and were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. The mother was reportedly incoherent when she was taken to the medical facility. There were no working carbon monoxide detectors in the home.
An ongoing investigation into the cause of the incident is underway.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning in Ohio
Using alternative sources of power after severe weather, such as winter storms, can cause carbon monoxide to build up in a home, poisoning the people and animals inside. Every year, at least 430 people in the United States die as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning, and about 50,000 people in the United States visit an emergency room.
Family members are often left in a difficult situation after a loved one’s life is tragically cut short due to the negligence of another, and recovering can be a battle for those left to pick up the pieces. People are naturally grieving, and filing a lawsuit is usually the last thing on their minds.
