Last Friday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, at least one hundred guests were sickened by toxic fumes emanating from the pool complex, some 1,500 guests were then evacuated from the vicinity, and 26 were hospitalized for respiratory problems. Luckily, none of the victims' injuries were life-threatening. The cause of the incident, as noted by the Associated Press, was an overabundance of sodium hypochlorite, a major component of chlorine bleach.
The good news is the number of deaths due to skank are expected to decline.
