2 die seeking a high from laughing gas

2 die seeking a high from laughing gas

A MAN and a woman are dead and two others seriously injured after a bungled laughing gas prank in Sydney.
21 September 2005

A MAN and a woman are dead and two others seriously injured after a bungled laughing gas prank in Sydney.

The police believe the four had locked themselves in a car and set off a 1m-tall cylinder of nitrous oxide in a bid to get high, reported the Courier Mail.

But the gas, coupled with the lack of oxygen in the car, knocked all four unconscious.

The owner of the house where the car was found, Mr Tolson Domovski, 38, died en route to hospital. Ms Jessica Murray, 23, died from her injuries at 5pm yesterday.

Her boyfriend, a tenant at the home, Mr Jason Busuttil, 33, and a fourth man known only as Peter, 22, were treated in hospital and released.

The four were found by another tenant, Mr Michael Koutoukis, at 7.30am on Sunday. He had last seen the group as they headed out clubbing the night before.

At first, he thought they had just arrived home and were napping. 'There was a slight odour in the car, but I did not know what it was from and did not see the gas cylinder in the boot until police took it out later,' he said.

The police are probing how the four got hold of the cylinder, which is highly regulated for medical use in relieving pain.

The Sydney Morning Herald (SMH) reported that Mr Domovski worked for a company that transported cylinders to medical centres three years ago.

DEATHS IN US

According to Australian media reports, some clubbers are inhaling small bulbs of nitrous oxide torn from cans of whipped cream to heighten the effects of other party drugs, such as ecstasy.

In the US, about 10 to 15 people a year die from inhaling the small bulbs.

However, this is the first known case of a medical canister of the gas being used as a party drug.

An ambulance spokesman said all four suffered hypoxia, a potentially fatal condition in which the body is starved of oxygen, reported The Age.

Nitrous oxide itself is not deadly, added Dr Gordian Fulde: 'The thing that kills people and makes them very sick is not the gas, it's the exclusion of oxygen.'

So wait, some of them died and some lived? Unless someone came out within a few minutes I don't see how that's possible.

Yeah, this is what I want to know, also.

You're not going to get hypoxia from taking a hit off of a whippet here and there. You are still getting oxygen. And even if you take hits back to back, without a breath, you're not going to be able to take a hit once you pass out.

Mmm, smells like bullshit to me. A lot, I mean a LOT of people did nitrous here in New Zealand up until a few months ago when whipped cream bulbs were banned for retail sale due to bad media attention.

It was to the extent that every corner store "7-11" type thing you'd go to was selling them with a huge shelf full of boxes, right next to the still legal BZP 'party pills'.

Anyway the media attention was bad. I recall one case in which a 15 year old died from inhaling butane in some alleyway. They made it front page news. Except, sure enough, the accompanying photo was of nitrous oxide cannisters, and they spent over half the article talking about nitrous oxide in the same respects to glue and butane. Even though the youth had not inhaled any nitrous at all. Funny how they also fail to draw any more than a mention to the fact that he was very intoxicated on alcohol too.

So anyway out of a good 5 years or so of nitrous whippets being very popular in New Zealand never once have I seen any mention of someone dying from it other than the above mentioned which is clearly bias media rather than real facts. And my point is that I am 100% sure that if even a single person had died from it the media would have jumped on it it would be front page news for sure. Go figure.
