    Default Morgue Evacuated After Corpse Emits Chemical Odor

    SAN MATEO, Calif. -- The San Mateo County morgue was evacuated Thursday after a body undergoing an autopsy began to release a strong chemical odor, a county health system spokeswoman said.

    The incident was reported shortly before 11 a.m. at the San Mateo Medical Center at 222 W. 39th Ave in San Mateo, where the county's morgue is located, a fire dispatcher said.

    The body was that of a patient who had died at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Redwood City and was transferred to the morgue, San Mateo County Health System spokeswoman Robyn Thaw said.

    When the body was opened up, it was discovered that the patient appeared to have ingested acetone, a colorless, flammable liquid, Thaw said.

    Three staff members in the morgue were affected by the odor, and the office was evacuated. The three staff members were treated by medical staff at scene and are fine, Thaw said.

    No other areas of the medical center were evacuated, Thaw said.

    Fire officials were still airing out the morgue as of 1:15 p.m., San Mateo Fire Chief Dan Belville said. Employees were expected to return to work this afternoon, Thaw said.

    Wow. I've heard about that happening though. I don't know how people can work in morgues.

    Over the years it's occurred to me more than once to get into the business. People are always dying...talk about job security. I'm not squeamish and I'm rather disconnected from people so I wouldn't expect to get all emotional. My parents would shit a brick if I told them I was going be a mortician though so I've never gone forward with it.

    I could never work in a vet's office though. That would kill me daily and I'd eventually go insane.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Just keep him away from ceiling fans, waterfalls and any type of flying insect.

    They always seem to mock, pester and annoy him.
