In the spa room of a hotel in Jochberg, Tyrol, two men (34 and 38 years old) were cleaning pipes with liquid chlorine on Monday afternoon. However, an incident occurred that caused the dangerous concentrate to escape.
The 34-year-old Austrian accidentally opened a pipe tap while removing a hose around 2:30 p.m. This caused liquid chlorine to escape and get into the eyes of the two workers. The Austrian and his colleague from Romania (38) suffered chemical burns and had to be flown to hospital.
The fire brigades of Jochberg and Kitzbühel took action. They had to ventilate the wellness area. Dozens of helpers were present.
