Someone explained this to me last year after another one of these accidents: slurry tanks produce hydrogen sulfide and in high concentrations, like you'd get right at the surface of the shiatwater, it's fatal in under a minute. Then someone gets close to try and rescue you, and they get poisoned. Repeat until you have a dead family.

I thought in Ireland it was customary to wake until the wake to get shiatty.

So, (puts on glasses) I guess he fell into some deep shiat.

Despite the amount of information in the article, I seem to have missed how they fell into the pit, at least initially.
 
2012-09-16 12:25:00 AM
The first victim may have just been overcome by the fumes, fainted, and fell in, with the rest following as in Lsherm's post.

Fumes.

After the first person was overcome and fell in, i'll bet the others also fell in looking for them.

Yeah, this happened locally at a mushroom farm a few years ago. One person collapsed and died from those fumes. Two other co-workers then came to help and they died too. Two others came to see what was happening and they got irreversible brain damage.

Just wait a farking minute!

An article, in a Brit newspaper/online site, linked on Fark.com of all places, about something that actually happened in Britain?
Do you mean to tell me that it is NOT poking fun at something us colonials did? Sir, I refuse to believe that!

thank you. now if only TFA could have mentioned this so us westerns could figure it out.

CSB: My first job out of university was a power plant fueld with LFG (landfill gas 85% CH4). Anyway a few weeks before I started a new driver was hauling sludge or semi-solid human waste from the waste water treatment plant. When they put it into the landfill they dig a huge pit and empty it in, then bury it back with garbage. Well the driver had just started and opened the huge valve on the back of the tank without realizing what would happen. A giant wave of shiat pushed him into the hole and he was buried in shiat and only a boot was exposed. They had to use a big Cat D8 to pull him out with a rope around him since the suction was so bad. Needless to say, he died.

/got douched with landfill condensate once, puked for a day straight.

I have a hard time understanding how their is anyone left who works around those pits that is ignorant of the danger. I guess the desire to help immediately is very strong or maybe you think the person in trouble is having a medical problem unrelated to the environment.

To be fair, they were probably unconscious after their first H2S breath with no sense of smell or taste.
 
2012-09-16 12:55:43 AM
he site is only nine miles from another farm, where a farmer died in June ago after falling into a slurry tank.

who proofreads anymore?
 
2012-09-16 12:58:04 AM
Yeah, I've read about this kind of accident far too often. You'd think anybody who maintains a toxic poop pit on their property would be aware of the dangers and take proper precautions.

Then again, maybe some backward bum-fuk countries in Europe haven't figured it out yet.
 
2012-09-16 12:58:59 AM
The only way this would be worse is if it was pig shiat.

Cow shiat is foul, but pig shiat is possibly one of the worst things in the farking world.

Then fell down another
And now they're interred side by side

I see that sort of ignorance every day.

You are supposed to test the air before going into a place that may have deadly gasses. You are supposed to wear a respirator if you do have to go in there. You are supposed to wear a safety harness, so that if you go down, somebody else can pull you back up.

I'm guessing these guys took the "fark all that noise, that's never gonna happen to me!" approach. Now they have paid for it.

Two things.

I think usually you don't have toxic gases building up, meaning if you went for a swim you'd just be stanky. That makes people complacent. I remember a tannery where the waste pit of sludge out back across a parking lot 'turned over' and the fumes killed the two security guards, inside the building.

The other is some toxic toxic gasses can and do deaden your sense of smell in high concentrations. Others the smell changes at high concentrations. Cyanide and Hydrogen Sulfide are notorious for both.

They probably don't have any way to know for sure, unless there was a security camera watching them or something. But i think it's so common that it's a safe assumption when you find that many people drowned in something which gives off bad fumes.
