Posted: Oct 22, 2009 3:44 PM EDT
WACO - Emergency Crews rushed to the Science building on the McLennan
Community College Campus just after 2:30 p.m. Thursday after Mercury was
spilled in the doorway.
Asst. Fire Chief Patrick Kerwin reported 10 pounds of Mercury spilled
onto the concrete; firefighters cordoned off the area while they
formulated a plan to clean up the mess.
According to Kerwin, the spill does not pose a major threat to the
campus; classes are being held as usual.
MCC staff members were moving the Mercury on a rolling cart when the
container fell to the ground and shattered.
