911 excerpts reveal desperate attempts to save casualties in a poultry plant accident

911 call excerpts that were released recently showed the terrors and fear that was looming in the poultry plant in Georgia on Thursday (January 28). One of the plant’s liquid nitrogen pipes used to preserve chickens leaked and caused six workers to die and 9 to be admitted to the hospital, with three still under critical condition.

The director of the Prime Pak Foods branch in Gainesville, Mr. Zach Hoover, had called for an ambulance for the 6 workers who were killed and to tend to the leak. He then had called dispatchers again to inform them that he wanted help at the back of the plant. “I’ve got multiple people affected by liquid nitrogen,” he said. He then went on to say, “He’s foaming at the mouth. Eyes are open, struggling,” when he was asked if the victims were breathing.

According to the New York Post, The Hall County Sheriff’s Office identified the victims on Friday (January 29) as Jose DeJesus Elias-Cabrera, 45; Corey Alan Murphy, 35; Nelly Perez-Rafael, 28; Saulo Suarez-Bernal, 41; Victor Vellez, 38; and Edgar Vera-Garcia, 28.

Meanwhile, more than a hundred workers were being evacuated from the plant to a church to be checked. Georgia boasts of being the top producer of chicken, yet safety protocols and care for all workers were not taken into consideration, which may be a reason why many people were affected by this accident. Rest in peace.
