Carbon monoxide poisoned 22 family members inside an Irvington home late Tuesday night.
The family showed toxic levels of carbon monoxide poisoning when they walked in at CHI Health Immanuel hospital, according to the Omaha Fire Department. Firefighters from multiple agencies then rushed 21 to Nebraska Medicine for hyperbaric treatment. One stayed at Immanuel hospital.
Investigators found toxic levels of carbon monoxide inside the family's home near 87th and Read streets. Officials say the family is from Burma, also known as Myanmar, and has babies and children.
"Douglas County units, Ponca Hills, Irvington, Children's Hospital, Omaha Fire, Immanuel, and UNMC all worked together for the best interest of these people," captain David Kirchhofer said.
