A Nasty Way to Die

As you can see from the picture the maggots had started to infest the bloody, leftover remains of a human scene we cleaned up this weekend in Cincinnati.

The story was this guy worked at a job where he was exposed to a lot of chemicals and at times pretty intense fumes and fire. He had a few close calls where he was exposed to chemicals that had leaked on his skin and burned him a few times.

Apparently the last week of his life he worked on a train derailment for several days straight on an out of town job. The job was dangerous because tankers carrying dangerous chemicals had overturned causing a chemical spill and fire. The fumes were bad and even though he wore a plastic suit and mask he had breathed in a great deal of the chemicals when his mask had fallen off.

He suffered internal burns and internal bleeding that he didn’t get checked for after he returned from the out of town job. He must have felt very bad but didn’t do anything about it. Can you even imagine what that would feel like burning and bleeding internally? All I can say is that had to be a nasty way to die.

He fell dead after being home a couple of days and his body had stuff oozing out of it and everything.

He lived alone so he wasn’t found for awhile. At Advanced Bio Treatment we specialize in unattended death cleanup scenes.

Unattended Death Can Be A Hazardous Situation

Most often it can contain blood, tissue, bodily fluids, urine, and feces all in a state of decomposition. This can pose an extreme risk for untrained individuals as they can be exposed to infectious diseases. A single drop of decomposing bodily fluid can contain germs, bacteria, and active disease that will remain viable and dangerous for long periods of time. These dangers can seep into and be absorbed by cloth, carpet, wood, flooring, sub-flooring, in between walls, and ceilings carrying their pathogens with them. In addition to the risk an untrained person undertakes when dealing with an unattended death, OSHA and the EPA have strict regulations on the collection and disposal to these types of hazardous material. Not only does Advanced Bio Treatment have professionally trained technicians with specialized equipment to handle the scene of an unattended death, but we also handle the entire disposal for you.
