Liquid Nitrogen Leak Kills At Least 6, Injures 9 in Georgia

Gas Leak

A Georgia food packing plant 60 miles northeast of Atlanta was the site of a liquid nitrogen leak that killed at least six and hospitalized nine others. At least three victims are in critical condition.

Shortly after 10 a.m., authorities in Gainesville responded to a report of burns at Prime-Pak Foods Inc. Within 10 minutes, the report was updated to a hazardous materials response. 

As of the time of this writing, the cause of the leak remains under investigation. 

"Our hearts are broken hearing about the tragedy that took place at Prime Pak Foods,” said Governor Brian Kemp in a statement. “May God be a hand of peace, comfort, and healing in the days ahead."
