Nineteen people were hospitalized early Sunday after an intentional chlorine leak at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare during the 2014 Midwest FurFest, public safety officials said.
The leak, reported at about 12:45 a.m. Sunday, caused a complete evacuation of the hotel at 9300 W. Bryn Mawr Avenue. The hotel was hosting the Midwest FurFest convention. Attendees dress up like furry animals and celebrate art, literature and performance based on anthropomorphic animals, according to the convention’s website.
Rosemont Public Safety received several calls from guests at the hotel stating there was a noxious odor spreading across the 9th floor, according to the statement. More people told units upon arrival that the odor was also on the 8th floor.
But I have to admit that while safety is my main concern, I'd love to know WHY this happened
yeah people do find it bizarre...I don't do the dress up personally, but have a fine time
I can't even fathom how they would catch the person
But I guess I have to wonder since this is very likely intentional, what's the angle, end-game, goal?
Some ridiculously stupid trick? Anti-furry hatred? Terrorism?
