Six Admitted to Mexican Hospital with Possible Radiation Exposure

Possibly connected to truck stolen, then abandoned


Federal police blocked access Friday to a central Mexico hospital where six people were reported to have been admitted with radiation exposure.

An official familiar with the case confirmed Mexican media reports that the six have been admitted to the general hospital in the city of Pachuca and may have been exposed to a stolen source of cobalt-60.

The official, who spoke Friday on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to speak to the media, said only one person was dizzy and vomiting, which are symptoms of radiation poisoning.

  1. “?dizzy and vomiting, which are symptoms of radiation poisoning?”? Hells bells, that is my reaction to every syllable that falls from the lips of our Morally Superior Emperor O-Butt-Hole and ALL of his minions, Demoblican and Republicrat alike, from the Galactic Center of All That Matters, in Warshington, DC!!! Which is why I am now donning my “gay apparel” (invoking the holiday season, I am), and putting on my tin-foil “anti-matter hat” (which fends off ALL things that DO NOT MATTER), and saying, “Can’t touch this, I am RADIOACTIVELY HOT, bitches!”. I’ll be waiting fer YOU in the de-contamination facility?
