1 dead, 3 treated for carbon monoxide poisoning in Daytona Beach

Child and two adults die from carbon monoxide poisoning from generator they used inside their home after Hurricane ...

When Carter didn't answer the door, Carter's mother came to unlock the door and found her son dead inside the home.

The child was in a home where a portable generator was running in the living room.

The name of the person who died has not been identified.

The Florida Department of Health in Orange County is urging residents to be aware of the dangers of carbon monoxide in the wake of Hurricane Irma. The other two were taken to Halifax Hospital in critical condition before being transferred to St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach, where they will be placed in a hyperbaric chamber to help eliminate carbon monoxide from their bloodstream. "Generators need to be kept outside homes and garages and away from open doors and windows, vents, and air intakes", warned the police.

-Turn off generators and let them cool down before refueling.

For those who are concerned about CO poisoning, find out how to detect and prevent carbon monoxide poisoning on the CDC's website.

Carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless, and it can cause sudden illness or death if enhaled. Depending on the level of exposure, carbon monoxide may cause headache, nausea, lethargy (or fatigue), weakness, abdominal discomfort/pain, confusion, dizziness, visual disturbances including blurred vision, numbness and tingling, loss of muscle control or coordination, irritability, agitation, chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations, seizures, loss of consciousness, and in severe cases, death. Do not operate generators or grills in a garage.

Do not use generators in enclosed spaces or partially enclosed areas, even with ventilation.

-Place generators so that exhaust fumes can't enter the home through windows, doors or other openings in the building.

Carbon monoxide is often referred to as the silent killer. Make sure to test alarms frequently and replace dead batteries. If you start to feel sick, dizzy, or weak while using a generator or gas grille, get to fresh air RIGHT AWAY. If the victim has collapsed or is not breathing, call 911 immediately.
