CALGARY - A vehicle left running in the garage of a Calgary home has killed one man and sent seven neighbours to hospital with carbon monoxide poisoning.
Calgary police say the man s death is not considered suspicious.
Carol Henke (HANK-ee) with the Calgary fire department says a concerned person called for help after hearing a vehicle running for quite awhile.
She says the colourless, odourless gas had leaked into three attached townhomes.
Nine people in those units were assessed and seven were taken to area hospitals.
Adam Loria with Calgary s Emergency Medical Services says the seven people, including four young children, were not in life-threatening condition.
