Louisiana worker injured after explosions at chemical plant

Working with chemicals can be a dangerous job. On May 21, a serious incident occurred at a chemical plant in Louisiana. A spokesperson from the Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office declared a state of emergency after several explosions occurred at the plant. The accident happened at about 10:30 a.m., and the resulting chemical fire caused an evacuation of the surrounding area as well as a shut down on a local road. A worker was injured in the incident.

Doctors concluded that the child was no longer living as the result of an ultrasound that did not detect a fetal heart rate.
