It wasn’t until around 12:40pm that people started to get sick. Only a handful at first but within an hour over half the people in the grandstands were vomiting where they sat, most not able to make it to the bathrooms, which had shockingly long lines. Several began to seizure and by 2pm the first person had died.
It spread like wildfire, and soon the entire grandstand was vomiting and seizuring all over each other. Local authorities, who had been called after the first death, were slow to respond and by 4:30pm over 650 people were dead and a thousand more were hospitalized. Tents were set up in the parking lot and medical staff called in from every town within a 200 mile radius. Of those that were hospitalized, another 305 people died.
Black Canyon City, in common with such other Yavapai county communities as Camp Verde, Cornville, Rimrock and Village of Oak Creek, has well water exceeding the current maximum limit of 10 ppb arsenic. Two thirds of the Black Canyon City residents and most of the businesses are served by a water District. The remaining residents are served by a private water company. Both water systems have invested heavily in arsenic treatment facilities and the water in Black Canyon City fully meets all federal standards. Both are continuously monitored by ADEQ for compliance.
The story is complete and utter BS.
