Workers treated after chemical leak

Dalton, GA (WDEF) – Two people were sent to the hospital with serious conditions after an accident this morning at a Dalton, Georgia chemical plant.   

It happened just after sunrise at MFG Chemicals Incorporated.

Authorities say a worker at the plant was mixing chemicals into a reactor; but could not close the lid fast enough to avoid a reaction from the chemicals.

The chemicals blew back into his face and caused a gas cloud.

One worker was flown to a burn center in Augusta, Georgia.

Another was taken to a local hospital.
