Two Dead, Four Injured in Boston from CO Poisoning Related to Blizzard

Cars covered in snow.

Two people have died and four people were treated for carbon monoxide poisoning in Boston related to this past weekend’s blizzard, according to the Boston Public Health Commission. 

The posioning occured after the victims failed to clear their car’s tailpipe from snow blockages before starting their cars. 

One of the deaths in Boston was a 14-year-old Roxbury boy who he went inside a running car to keep warm while his father shoveled, the Boston Globe reported. 

In the second incident, a man was found dead in a car with a blocked tailpipe in Mattapan, police said. 

Katinka Podmaniczky, spokesperson for the BPHC, stressed how important it is to clear cars of snow properly before starting them.

“[We are trying to] get the word out about how important it is to clear the tailpipe and undercarriage before turning it on, or getting in,” she said. “We also suggest cracking the windows while you’re warming up the car.” read more

PHOTOS: Before and After the Blizzard in the South End

Union Park: Before the storm.

The predictions were true. The blizzard of 2013 dumped more than two feet in the Boston area. 

In the South End especially, many small side streets were not plowed for the first 24 hours, and many residents with plowed streets woke up to find their cars completely buried in several feet of packed snow.

Did you take any “before” and “after” pictures? Add them to the South End photo gallery to see what a difference two feet of snow makes.
