Two Ethiopians Suffocate Due to Coal Heating System

Two Ethiopian female workers were found dead in an area north of Beirut on Saturday due to suffocation from a coal heating system, the National News Agency reported.

The two females, in their thirties, were found in a room in the northern neighborhood of Blat Jbeil, NNA added.

A third female was found in a critical condition. She was transported to a nearby hospital by the Red Cross rescue team for treatment, added the agency.

Police patrol and a forensic doctor arrived at the scene.

With the arrival of this season’s first winter storm two days ago, the Internal Security Forces called on citizens and refugees to take precautionary measures to prevent cases of suffocation resulting from gas or coal heating systems, which killed 18 people and injured dozens last year.
