Two boaters suffer carbon monoxide poisoning
Emergency medical personnel and local firefighters were called to help two people overcome by carbon monoxide while boating near Havre de Grace on Sunday afternoon. A man and a woman were taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, according to Steve Allers, deputy chief with the Susquehanna Hose Company. The couple were “enjoying a day on the water” near the Tidewater Marina in the 100 block of Bourbon St. when they suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning, apparently from their boat’s engine exhaust, Allers said. One of two Newfoundland dogs that were on the boat was also treated after being taken by Harford County Animal Control, Allers said. The incident was reported at about 3:34 p.m.
