Inmates treated after carbon monoxide leak

Posted: November 24, 2012

YORK, Pa. - A carbon monoxide leak at a central Pennsylvania prison appears to have been caused by a problem with the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning system that serves the affected housing unit.

York County Prison in Springettsbury Township sent 49 female inmates to hospitals late Wednesday and early Thursday. County officials said in a statement that all 49 had been returned to prison by late Thursday afternoon. County Commissioner Doug Hoke said it was an "unfortunate situation" but "could have been a disaster." - AP
