1 dead, another injured from carbon monoxide

ST. LOUIS (AP) — One person is dead and another seriously injured from carbon monoxide poisoning in St. Louis.

Firefighters arrived at a four-apartment complex Friday to find a person unconscious and another feeling sick. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports officials found high levels of carbon monoxide inside the building.

The cause of the carbon monoxide leak is under investigation. The names of the victims were not immediately made available.
