Person overcome by carbon monoxide in SeaTac

An individual was hospitalized yesterday after being overcome by carbon monoxide produced by a propane heater, according to Randy Droppert, public information officer for the SeaTac Fire Department.

After repeated attempts to contact the victim, family members went to the home and found the victim unconscious and unresponsive. The victim was taken to a local hospital, but the condition was not immediately released.

According to Droppert, the victim had been using a propane heater in the home and appears to have been overcome by the noxious gases. A news release did not mention the age or gender of the victim.
