Over forty people rushed to hospital after suspected carbon monoxide leak at Winnipeg hotel
A suspected carbon monoxide leak at a Super 8 Motel in Winnipeg has sent 46 people to hospital.
Emergency officials say 15 of those people are in critical condition, while five are considered in unstable condition, although everyone is expected to survive. Manitoba Hydro says it has shut off gas to the building and is beginning a ventilation process.
