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.
