TAOS, N.M. (KRQE) – A bizarre situation forced the evacuation of a New Mexico hospital. A patient arrived at the Holy Cross Hospital in Taos Sunday night after consuming a deadly dose of prairie dog poison.
A strong smell of the chemicals was emitting from the man’s body so officials had to evacuate the ER and treat the man outside. He later died.
The ER is still sealed off but the rest of the hospital is open.
A few emergency personnel were treated for reactions from the chemicals but are expected to be OK.
