Three women and baby rushed to hospital with carbon monoxide poisoning

THREE women and a 15-month-old baby are recovering after being rushed to hospital with carbon monoxide poisoning.

The family are alleged to have been camping in Victoria’s east and went to bed with a butane heater on inside their tent.

Reports suggest family members went to check on the crying baby and found the three unconscious women inside the tent.


The incident comes a week after a man was found dead inside his home using a camping heater attached to an LPG bottle.

Residents are being reminded to never use gas appliances designed for outdoor use in enclosed spaces.
