This is worse then getting shanked for a Popeyes chicken sandwich.

No one told him about ammonia and bleach

PSA ...if you're ever cleaning toilets or swabbing the poop deck, and a noxious Greenish-Yellowish cloud starts hanging off of whatever you just sprayed, *clear the room and get everybody out!!!* The use of chlorine gas was highly effective in World War I... but doesn't have much of a place beyond industrial settings in 2019. Just be careful what chemicals you're working with at all times, and wear the proper PPE! If you are an employer, it is your responsibility by law to provide a material safety datasheet to employees in an accessible location, and provide proper training when working with potentially hazardous materials.

Edit: thanks Nathan!

Sodium Hypochlorite is common bleach used laundry, cleaning & disinfecting. Ammonia is also used in cleaning, but if you mix the two, toxic chlorine gas results.

Someone didn't read the warning labels. But we know that it's the employer who's supposed to train the employee on proper chemical safety.

I worked at Pepsi and we had a guy from ecolab come in about quarterly to hold training sessions on proper usage, ppe, reading labels, etc.

I pulled 6, 18 yr old guys out of a Army latrine that mixed ammonia and bleach because they thought it would work better. That’s what happens when mommy does all the cleaning.

Jimmy: oh look it’s sodium chloride.
Random guy: no it’s salt.

Sad to admit I almost did this myself. I was 15 on my first job at Pizza Hut. They told me to clean up the floors. I had never cleaned before in my life. I thought bleach good + amonia even better! Luckily the older employees recognized what happened and aired out the place.

Probably mixed bleach with ammonia, producing toxic chloramine vapor. Tragic.

Hank Hill - "Ammonia and chlorine.. that's the recipe for mustard gas."

But it wasn't ammonia, most likely he mix chlorine with an acid base chemical.

Feel weird liking this type of videos,
There has to be a “sad” option, a watched” or at the very least “aware” option to highlight instead of liking some type of suffering or lost

I used to work with it and had to wear a respirator when mixing it with water, if I used too much the chlorine fumes were unbearable..it can harm you with out any other chemical being added

Can't breath through chlorine gas. Don't play with chemicals.
