Liquid Nitrogen at Jägermeister Pool Party Sickens Guests

LEON, Mexico (KTLA) — Several people were rushed to the hospital during a Jagermeister sponsored pool party after organizers poured liquid nitrogen into hotel pool.

The liquid nitrogen mixed with the pool’s chlorine, creating a toxic fog that left one man in a coma and sickened eight others.

Most of the injured were released from the hospital, but a 21-year-old man remained in a coma.
Local authorities were investigating the incident to determine if charges would be filed.

In a statement,  Jagermeister stated that the company was aware of the incident, which was currently being investigated by officials at Jagermeister’s headquarters in Germany.

‘We are liaising with the responsible distributor in Mexico who is working with the event organizers and the investigating authorities to understand the full circumstances surrounding the events last Saturday night,’ the statement read.
