The applicator was making an application on Tuesday evening, August 7, 2007. He was alone at the location, so there were no witnesses to the events. Initial indications are that the application involved the use of more than one container. It appears that when the first container was emptied, the applicator initiated use of the second container, after which the applicator was exposed to an unknown amount of acrolein. Applicator's wife stated that he called her and said he was not feeling well and that he had difficulty seeing. The applicator was hospitalized and treated by medical professionals over the next 6 days. He passed away on (date)
