After entering Pump Room #2, Employee #1 was overcome with hydrogen sulfide and unable to exit the room. Upon hearing that Employee #1 had fallen, Employee #2 then entered the room to retrieve Employee #1. Both employees were unable to exit the room and were killed from over exposure to hydrogen sulfide.
