  1. LuAnn Baker says:

    Oh my, that’s not good. 98 degree hot weather, hydration loss, small working enclosure, fumes from toxic product; I ‘m not surprised of the seriousness, it could have been fatal.
    I am so full of gratitude for our “1st. Responders. I say ‘amen’ they were there for sure. They possibly saved this man’s life! #Everybody’sLifeMatters!

    Sending healing prayers!
