Bronx Building Evacuated Due to Carbon Monoxide Leak: 13 Hospitalized

On Wednesday morning in East Tremont, Bronx, two people were critically injured due to a carbon monoxide leak in a building, according to sources.

The FDNY reports that at approximately 6:45 a.m., the alarming carbon monoxide detector at the Twin Park South East building, which is situated at 800 East 180th St. in East Tremont, went off. According to the authorities, carbon monoxide poisoning caused at least 13 residents—among them a 17-year-old—to be taken to the hospital. Several credible sources state that two of the patients were in critical condition.

According to officials, the building was quickly evacuated, and residents were allowed to return about 8:40 a.m.

According to the New York City Department of Buildings, the carbon monoxide leak in the trash compactor room was caused by an old, rusted gas boiler, which eventually allowed the gas to spread throughout the building.

A resident of the building named Esmeralda Ramos gave PIX11 News an account of her time there. According to her, “I instantly jumped up when the alarm started going off.” It dawned on me as I was leaving the room. I felt lightheaded. “What is going on?” I asked myself.

Ramos roused her kids and hurried them out of their sixth-floor flat in a panic. Remembering how urgent the situation was, she said, “I was crying, I was scared, I was praying that they were OK, that they were going to wake up.” Ramos went on to describe how she helped her neighbors evacuate and called 911 at the same time.

The people who were taken to the hospital included Ramos and her kids after they realized how serious the situation was. Inspectors arrived on the scene quickly to assess and resolve the situation, including those from the Department of Buildings, FDNY, and NYPD.
