Heard of a bad news regarding from a girl named RIYA.
She passed away last weekend due to carbon monoxide poisoning.
It happened when she lighted an chemotherapeutic candle for the night in a room with air-conditioning on and all windows closed.
Due to lack of oxygen in the room, the burning of the candle cannot fully oxidized & thus forming dangerous carbon monoxide.
Carbon monoxide will prevent oxygen exchange in the lungs, resulting the person dozing off to state of unconsciousness & eventually death in less than 1 hour, depending on the room size.
